Two excellent youth leadership opportunities available as part of the Canada 150 celebration year. Please note the deadlines and pass on through your chains and out to Corps/Squadrons and into our community as quickly as possible. A fantastic opportunity that should not be overlooked.

Experiences Canada (http://experiencescanada.ca/150/ ), through their Canada150&Me initiative, is offering youth the opportunity to participate in youth forums regionally and nationally and to act as chaperone and mentor to those youth participating in the forums.

Youth Ambassador (21-30 years): Experiences Canada is seeking 16 Canadians, aged 21-30, to play a leadership role as a 150&Me Youth Ambassador.
