The Kelty Youth Ambassador program is back for another year, and we want YOU!
If you’re a B.C. youth 17-25 interested in promoting mental health in your school or community, we encourage you to apply!
Last year’s ambassadors participated in some very cool projects including creating a video honoring Brent Seal and Sarah Irving (the two hosts for the Balancing our Minds: Youth Summit), organizing the creation of a ‘mental wellness’ quilt (pictured above), and hosting ‘mirror, mirror’ at various events--an activity intended to boost self-esteem and body image by having people look into a mirror and write something that they love about themselves on a post-it note.
Ambassadors also had opportunities to provide feedback on apps promoting mental health and wellness, be a part of focus groups for improving programs intended for schools across B.C., and to volunteer at various events.
As every new year of the youth ambassadors begins, we’re always excited to see where we’ll take it! The projects that come together, and the passion that young people have for changing the way we view and treat mental health in B.C are so impressive and amazing. We truly believe that it is making a difference.

We can’t wait to work with you :)
