High Ground Youth Delegation

The deadline for applications has closed. Thank you to everyone who applied.

We’re excited to announce that we will welcome our first-ever Youth Delegation to this year’s civic governance forum. (Big shout out to BCTF for making this possible!).

The high schoolers (grades 11 + 12) will interact with some of our province’s elected leaders who are addressing and shaping the most important issues we face across the economy, climate and environment, and education.

With the forum as their classroom, the participants will emerge with an expanded understanding of what it takes to build sustainable, equitable, and inclusive communities in BC and the inspiration to be a part of it. We encourage students from all backgrounds to apply!

So, if  you know a high school student in grade 11 or 12 (we’ve got 4 spots) who cares about the ideas and stories that are shaping our communities, please share this opportunity with them or email Aidan at ashirley@columbiainstitute.ca.
