Youth speak up in video premiere

Residents of all ages are invited to gather for the showcasing of a brand new youth documentary. The twelve-minute documentary features interviews with youth from the community, covering a variety of topics including role models, stressors, social media and more.

The documentary show time is Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Community Centre (401 Festival Lane).

After viewing the film, Family and Community Services will be hosting a panel discussion that will include Strathcona County youth and youth serving agencies. All who attend can ask questions and engage in the discussion.

Subscribe to the hashtag #SCYouthTalk on the day of the event to join a live Twitter conversation.

The Strathcona County Youth Documentary is a catalyst for discussion about youth culture in Strathcona County. The project is a way to increase the community's awareness of local youth culture and start conversations about how the community can utilize youth's strengths, identify possible gaps and enhance the youth experience.

In addition, Strathcona County will announce the winner of the MDP Update youth photo contest. All eligible photo entries will be displayed in the Community Centre Atrium from September 14 to November 1, 2015.
