Youth assembly next month

  • Apr. 3, 2014 2:00 p.m.

Island youth will pack the George Brown Hall in Skidegate from May 8 to 10 to get active, compete, and learn during the Haida Gwaii Youth Assembly.”We’re interpreting governance in a different way. The youth will be getting active, getting out of their comfort zone, competing in physical challenges, and we’ll be sneaking in education along the way,” said Youth Assembly Chair and CHN Old Massett representative Kiefer Collison.The three major and five minor team challenges remain top secret until they’re unveiled during the assembly, Mr. Collison said. Even so, youth can expect two things for certain: they’ll be busy and active.”There’s not a lot of sitting; it’s a get-up-and-go experience and we fill every second,” he said.The gathering is open to all Haida Gwaii youth aged 13 to 24. All-island participation is made possible with travel, accommodation and food costs covered for those registered.As well, nominations for president, vice-president and eight representatives (four south and four north) are to be submitted by April 21.Registration and nomination forms are available at schools, the Haida Gwaii Youth Assembly Facebook page, and by emailing Harmony Williams at harmony.williams@haidahealth.ca.The north contact is Harmony Williams at 626-3573 and the south contact is Paula Varnell at 559-8363.
