What the AT NET Council Has Been Up To
If any of these projects are something that you can benefit from
- GET INVOLVED –
It works better when we work together and you score some
Community Service Hours too!
Volunteer Appreciation Night
A collaboration of all three youth councils, this event was held at the Cookstown Library to honor youth volunteers of South Simcoe. Guest speaker, Joy Foster, accompanied us on this event to empower and motivate these admirable individuals. Youth were nominated by the organization they volunteered for and were recognized with a short speech on behalf of their organization. Each volunteer was presented with an award and were showcased on a display to honor each nominee.
Local youth had a chance to have their voice heard and streamed live online. This allowed youth to voice their opinions on anything in the community or of interest to them. We hosted this booth with as little limitations as possible to give youth a real chance to acknowledge the issues or acomplishments that surround youth. We hope to do this again - but we'll need your help!
YNOT hosted an open-mic night at the Blue Frog Cafe in Alliston. The Blue Frog Cafe is an excellent resource for youth. It is an outlet for youth to expose themselves and gain experience - and YNOT did just that! This perfect hang out for youth was an excellent location to have 5 local youth artists engage in the arts of South Simcoe, while engaging an audience of both youth and adults.
Potato Festival Parade
Along the same theme as our Open-Mic Night, YNOT entered a float into the annual Potato Festival Parade in Alliston. The youth engaged the community of Alliston with a local band and built awareness around the events that YNOT has hosted in the past. This float definitely rocked everyone's socks off!
Being apart of YNOT gives you endless opportunities. YNOT has sent many youth to conferences to help youth develop leadership skills, decision making skills , youth engagement and much more.
