Announcing the Kelty Youth Ambassador Program

Brent, Youth in Residence on November 30, 2012

We are very excited to announce a brand new Kelty Mental Health pilot program – The Kelty Youth Ambassador Program. The Ambassadors group will be a select number of young people who want to make a difference and get involved in mental health and wellness promotion in BC. The group will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience working on mental health projects, campaigns and events. The group will come together for the first time in January 2013 and work together in a pilot program until June 2013. Through feedback and development we will then launch the full program in September 2013.

Are you a youth looking to get involved? We are currently recruiting passionate changemakers who want to jump right in and make a difference right away. Some exciting opportunities to get involved will be coordinating a youth summit, working on YouTube videos, writing blog posts, creating campaigns and of course coming up with your own ideas.

If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you today. We will have applications open until December 31, 2012 so act fast.

We look forward to meeting you!

Keep Rockin’

Brent and Sarah (Kelty Youth in Residence)
