A chance for programmers, decision makers, and leaders to learn how to increase the impact of their youth programming, and enhance community partnerships. Ignite Youth is coming to Weyburn this weekend. The program is being hosted by the Southeast Connection Sport, Culture & Recreation District, in collaboration with the Sun Country Health Region, the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Cornerstone Family & Youth and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association.
“A lot of the leaders from the community had come to us to say, you know, this is a need. We need some professional development. We need an opportunity to know what’s happening in other communities when it comes to youth programs,” explained Joni Hagen, the executive director of Southeast Connection Sport, Culture & Recreation District. “So, it was a need that was identified by those leaders in the communities.”
The event is on April 26th in Weyburn. For those who want to register, there is still time to do it. Registration of Ignite Youth is done online on the Southeast Connection website.
