There are lots of great events happening for youth in Hali County in the coming weeks. Check out the attached posters for details. Please help us spread the word about these opportunities and get lots of Hali County Youth involved in these awesome events.
Feb 28 @ 4 PM – “Have a Voice! Help Others Have a Voice!”
This FREE event is open to all Hali County Youth ages 12-25. Snacks are proved and transportation is available for those who need it. This will be a fun, safe, interactive workshop that helps everyone be heard. Join Cecile Doo-Kingue, award winning blues musician and advocate for LGBTQ rights as she uses music and rhythm to help us understand how to be heard and how to hear one another. Not a musician? Not a problem! No musical experience is necessary to join in. Cecile will be using the dynamics of music to help us understand listening, joining in, inviting others, and seeing the “big picture” of groups and they way they communicate. Cecile is one of Canada’s most electrifying guitar players, blending blues, afro-roots and soul. Email Haliburtonhub@pointintime.ca with any questions or to reserve transportation.
Starting March 5th – SHIFT – Arts Based Pre-Employment Program for Youth 18-29
This FREE program for youth ages 18-29 runs for 4 weeks starting March 5th on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-3 PM @ Hali County Youth Hub (12 Dysart Ave). Lunch will be provided to participants each day. Two talented local artists and one of Fleming CREW’s Employment and Training Consultants will be facilitating with focus on preparing participants for employment and placing each of them in placements with local employers at the end.
