Change Projects are led by youth with the help of adult allies. You can get support from community members, teachers and your team! However, youth are in charge of coming up with ideas for their project and thinking about what activities they want to do. Youth are also responsible for leading those activities and making sure they get done. But you do it as a team!
Community change projects must:
1.Empower youth voice in their community
2.Promote what it means to be Canadian
3.Support the authentic inclusion of individuals who have an intellectual disability
With your team, you need to think about what you want other people to know about your experience as a youth in Canada. You will need to think about activities that can teach people about that experience. Then you will need to find people who can help you lead those activities. The goal is to create change in your community. The goal is also to help your community understand and support your vision for Canada.
Some questions to ask yourself:
What do you want other people to understand about your experience as a youth with a disability?
As a friend, sibling or peer of someone who has a disability?
What do you believe in that you want more Canadians to believe in?
What does inclusion really look like?
