Apply now for the Next Up youth leadership program

Applications are now being accepted for the fourth year of Next Up: A Leadership Program for Young People Committed to Social and Environmental Justice.

This is an amazing, intensive and transformative program for young social change activists between the ages of 18 and 32. This year we're excited to announce that the program will operate in three provinces: Next Up BC in Vancouver, Next Up Alberta in Edmonton, and Next Up Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, so please forward this call to your friends and colleagues in those regions. (The CCPA co-hosts the program in BC and Saskatchewan.)   

In each province, 13 young people will be selected. 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 application deadline for Next Up BC is Sunday Sept 12. The program runs between October 2010 and April 2011.

Please forward this call far and wide — to individuals, organizations, institutions and your progressive networks.  Encourage young people you know to apply. Thank you in advance for helping us find the fabulous young leaders for Next Up 2010/11 — you'll be thankful you did years from now!
