Ignite Activation Space | Chatham-Kent, ON
Kaitlin is a youth engagement lead from Chatham, Ontario. She's most drawn to working with young adults and passionate about 'for youth, by youth' initiatives. She knows that young people are more than capable of leading when presented with an opportunity, yet not many meaningful opportunities exist in the area. Kaitlin believes a good leader focuses on building relationships, actively listens, and can take a backseat approach when appropriate.
About the Project
This project is a paid opportunity for youth (14-29) to come together to design and create an outdoor activation space. Young adults will be able to take advantage of the space year-round and host free youth-led activities. The team will make a sign with a QR code linking to a page with youth opportunities (especially paid ones) in the area. Ideally, this will build a sense of community within the team and other youth in Chatham-Kent, igniting additional initiatives around Chatham-Kent that enhance the youth experience.
