The Community Foundation of P.E.I. is hosting two virtual vital conversations to explore the future of youth on the Island.
The two sessions, planned for Oct. 23 and Nov. 20 from noon to 1 p.m., will focus on several areas, including challenges the community is facing and what role youth can play to bring about changes in the community.
The conversations are meant to act as a follow up to the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge that saw three Island organizations receive $41,000 in grants.
Organizers will collect insight and data from the community through the sessions that can be used to guide future granting priorities, to guide conversations with new donors or to raise awareness of a community foundation and its leadership.
Youth aged 18-35 are encouraged to register for the event to share their feedback and knowledge regarding the future of youth in P.E.I.
More information and registration details can be found at cfpei.ca. Space is limited to the first 25 registrants for each of the two sessions (50 total) and draws will be made for five $50 grocery gift cards during each session.
The sessions will be facilitated by Chantal Brine of EnPoint and Kent Hudson of the Community Foundation of P.E.I.
Brine is a believer in experiential learning, a proponent for mentorship and an active advocate for women. As a TedX and sought-after speaker, she often talks about the importance of living an authentic life and on the impact of mentorship in advancing in one’s career.
