The ACT 4 Global Change Youth conference (previously Move Your World) invites youth, ages 15-17, to learn about and take action on global issues. Hosted by the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation, participants will spend three days (Nov 9-12, 2018) at the Tatamagouche Centre in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.
Through interactive activities, discussion, games, reflection a and more, the conference will explore topics such as: peace & conflict, human rights, Indigenous realities, the Sustainable Development Goals, refugee experiences, poverty & food sovereignty, gender equity, environment & sustainability, international trade (fair trade) & food security, global migration, 2SLGBTQ+ realities, water and sanitation, and more.
The conference is an opportunity for youth to get informed, get inspired, and take action on local and global issues in a safe and welcoming space. Participants will meet and engage with a diversity of youth from a variety of communities and cultures from all 4 Atlantic provinces.
We are currently seeking to fill 4 Volunteer Leader positions for this project and hope you will apply to join us in delivering this unique, challenging and inspiring program.
ACIC staff will train, give direction and provide support to Volunteer Leaders. Volunteer Leaders will be expected to meet and communicate with each other and with ACIC staff on a regular basis. Successful applicants will be part of a dynamic, fun and collaborative working team, and will be on site during the Conference to assist with logistics and delivery of programming.
The ACT 4 Global Change Conference allows not only the youth participants, but also Volunteer Leaders to be part of an environment that elicits learning, sharing and skills development.
At this time, we are looking for 5 Volunteer Leaders to assist ACIC staff and help make the Conference a success!
Volunteer Leaders will be provided with travel subsidies and an honorarium for their commitment.
