Next Up taking applications for 2012/13 programs in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon
Next Up -- A leadership program for young people committed to social and environmental justice
Next Up is an amazing, intensive and transformative program for young social change activists between the ages of 18 and 32. The program, co-founded by the CCPA's BC Office, is now offered in four cities across three provinces. (The Vancouver and Saskatoon programs are co-hosted by CCPA's local provincial offices there. Next Up in Edmonton and Calgary are co-hosted by the good folks at Alberta's Parkland Institute.)
In each province, a group of young people will be selected for an intense seven month program. Participants will develop life-long relationships, explore different leadership styles, meet some of the province’s leading change-makers, learn new leadership and organizing skills, and be exposed to current and topical social justice issues and progressive governance.
The deadline to apply for Next Up BC is Friday September 14, 2012 (deadlines vary for each province). The program runs between October 2012 and May 2013. Please forward this call far and wide -- to individuals, organizations, institutions and your progressive networks. Thank you in advance for helping us find the fabulous young leaders for Next Up 2012/13!
