2019 Youth Leadership and Team Building Training

JUST A FEW SPOTS LEFT & Bursaries still available – email info@cowichanestaury.ca for registration

On Tuesday, July 2nd, we will be hosting our annual Youth Leadership and Team Building Training for youth ages 14-18. The training workshop will take place at the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre from 9-4 pm. Lunch is included. The cost is $25-$45 (sliding scale) and we have bursaries available.  Just tell us why you’d like to attend.

This day-long interactive workshop for budding change-makers will provide lots of opportunities to learn and practice leadership and team building skills. Our focus this year is “engagement for healthy watersheds and climate action.” The day will include First Nations perspectives, stories from elders and a chance to learn about how our stories tap into shared values, connect us in relationships and create positive change. There will be opportunities to explore and practice group leadership and team-building skills with others in a natural setting – and have fun! Our facilitation team includes Laura Cuthbert from Organize BC and Kim Lagimodiere, Cowichan Watershed Board educator and Cowichan Tribes biologist.  It’s going to be an amazing interactive day.

There will also be post-workshop opportunities for youth to be out in nature and put their leadership and team building skills into action on water conservation and hands-on watershed restoration projects in the Cowichan and Koksilah Watershed this summer – and to get volunteer credits for school.
