  • Networks, Connections & New Opportunities

The skills will be developed by supporting the delivery of a water-focused storytelling contest for youth in schools and communities. These skills are excellent for your resume and your career development.

Length of the term as a YAB is 8 months (July/Aug 2020 – March 31 2021, rolling acceptances) – with an opportunity to be extended, as the project evolves into stage 2 – the touring exhibition across Canada. Approximate time commitment is 4-10 volunteer hours per month.

Young Water Speaks — Youth Storytelling Contest

Young Water Speaks is a youth-led national water-centric storytelling contest with webinars & workshops engaging school-aged youth, in all provinces and territories, to grow as storytellers and share factual and fictional stories about Canada’s water.

The winners’ entries will be featured in a travelling water story exhibit in 2021!

YAB members will assist with developing, promoting and delivering the program’s content and resources.
The YAB members will support the delivery of the contest by leading school group storytelling training workshops (currently online only, but in-person later into the volunteer role, if safe to gather).
