City to City
Our team at Preston Heights Community Group is excited to be introducing a new youth leadership program to our community for the summer of 2023. Youth gain 40 volunteer hours for completion of the full week.
City to City is a leadership development program for teens aged 13 to 17, that explores community from different locations, experiences, and lenses. Teens will visit 3 community spaces over 1 week; a farm, a city, and an Indigenous community space. The City to City programs explores themes of built environment, food, transportation, social location, and culture. Through group and self-reflective activities teens will develop leadership skills of collaboration, curiosity & openness, active listening, self reflection and social awareness, humility and attention to privilege and posture in community work. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for youth to gain a curious and critical perspective of social issues and solutions within community through insight into different life experiences.
City to City 2023 was a success!
Thank you to our City to City youth for being a great engaged team and first year of the program!
