Advocacy 101, Inclusion Alberta Youth's third annual youth conference, will take place on November 15th (4:00pm to 9:15pm) and November 16th (8:00am to 4:30pm) at MacEwan University's Robbins Health Learning Centre (both days are meant to be attended together). All youth, including those with and without disabilities, who are between the ages of 16 and 22 and interested in activism, leadership, social justice, etc, are welcome to attend.

Throughout this interactive, youth-driven conference, attendees will be given the opportunity to explore the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities, and learn some of the skills it takes to make that inclusion happen. The focus of this year's conference is on building social justice skills, and giving attendees the tools to practically apply them within their community.

Workshops and more info TBA! Check Inclusion Alberta Youth's Facebook page for the latest.

To attend both days, including food, registration is just $25 (plus tax/fees). Cost shouldn't be a barrier, though. Please contact our Youth Facilitator, Gracyn, at ggaal@inclusionalberta.org, if cost is standing in your way.
