Youth Leadership

Youth Leadership is a group of teens aged 12 – 19, who promote a positive image of, and act as a voice for, youth in our community.

The Youth Leadership team makes a difference by volunteering in the community, planning activities for peers, and speaking up about issues. This group also takes part in social activities, retreats, increases your leadership skills, and helps you gain experience for resumes/scholarships.

We meet once a month, on Mondays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., for a meeting at the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre. Additionally, we meet approximately once a month for social/volunteer activities outside of regular meetings.

Why Join?

  • Improve your leadership skills
  • Gain experience for resumes and scholarships
  • Volunteer at exciting events
  • HAVE FUN
