Powered By Youth Forum 2017
Posted by Peter MUIR
Registration is open for the annual Powered By Youth Forum. Organised by Kids4Kids, the Powered by Youth (PBY) focuses on developing well-rounded, forward-thinking leaders who excel in being change-makers, taking action, and supporting the community.
In the annual 2-day forum, students aged 12-17 take part in ‘Power Groups’ focusing on personal strengths, and ‘Passion Groups’ targeting social issues. Groups then create Community Act!on Projects, go through ‘Step Up’ workshops on pitching, writing advocacy, articulating personal values, and creative messaging. Finally, they pitch to a judging panel for a chance to bring their ideas to life. Successful projects join Act!on for a Cause and are allocated seed funding and a Kids4Kids mentor to help deliver the project and measure its impact.
