Youth Action Gatherings
Youth Action Gatherings (YAGs) bring together youth between the ages of 14-18. At this inclusive event, you will get to explore different venues for community leadership and how to take action on social/environmental injustices. While discovering your role within the scope of activism, there are also opportunities for fun through interactive workshops like yoga, sprouting, vegan cooking, and lively discussions on topics such as greenwashing and anti-oppression.
The Youth Action Gathering (YAG) in Nova Scotia was held from August 10-13 2012 at the Deanery Project (Ship Harbour, Nova Scotia).
Thank you to the Nova Scotia Department of Community Services for their generous support of this project through a Youth Engagement Grant!
The YAG was an amazing experience in 2011, many thanks to our sponsors, participants and facilitators for making it so!
We welcomed 13 to 18 year olds to the MacSkimming Outdoor Education Center for 4 days and 3 nights between the 4th and the 7th of August.
