The Youth Ambassador Program is an opportunity for BC youth and young adults to engage in promoting mental health and well-being amongst their friends, families, peers and communities.
Youth who join will have the opportunity to share ideas and connect with other like-minded youth throughout the year, and to get involved promoting mental health and well-being.
The program will run from October 2017 - May 2018.
In addition to connecting with other youth, there will be many opportunities to get involved promoting mental health and well-being. Some of these opportunities may include:
Planning and developing a mental health promotion project with a group of Ambassadors and Ambassador Mentors
Providing feedback on Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre (KMHRC) resources, programs, and initiatives
Joining a focus group on a particular KMHRC initiative
Promoting KMHRC and partner organization events and resources through your communities (both physical and online communities)
Speaking at KMHRC events, and/or helping to coordinate or promote KMHRC events
Writing a blog post that will be posted on the KMHRC website
Identifying and organizing your own activities that you might like to be involved in as an individual or as a group in your schools and/or communities
All youth between the ages of 17-25 who live in BC are welcome to participate. The program will be accepting youth with and without lived experience of mental health challenges, and will be looking for youth who are passionate about promoting mental health and well-being. All youth who participate must be willing to commit a minimum of 10 hours to the program.
Applications for the 2017-2018 Youth Ambassador Program are now closed.
