Two community workshops were held determining what the desirable future for Brandon youth would be. Volunteers from youth organizations and other interest groups gathered to look at what would make Brandon an attractive place for youth to live, learn, work and play. From this brainstorming session, a number of core areas were identified to be explored. These core areas were a result of collaboration between numerous community representatives looking at the desirable future within the next 3 - 5 years related to youth in Brandon.
Over 195 youth participated in the 2 day forum on October 11 & 12, 2005. Youth between the ages of 13 & 29 discussed what was working well in Brandon, what isn't going so well and what can be done related to all eight desirable future statements. The forum was seen as a huge success by organizers and participants.
Plans are already underway for YOUTH 2 forum - now is your chance to get involved!
