Next Gen Leadership Team
What is the Next Gen Leadership team?
The Next Gen Leadership team is a unique opportunity to play a key role in developing a sense of community and belonging among Next Gen in Strathcona County. As part of the Next Gen leadership team you will help plan events and initiatives, lead and have a voice in your community, mobilize change, and shape the future of Strathcona County.
Consider Joining the Next Gen Leadership team if...
You identify as a youth and/or young adult.
You are passionate about leading and creating change in Strathcona County to support Next Gen
You want to develop leadership skills, build relationships and a network, and have fun!
If you don't identify as a youth, young adult, and/or don't live in Strathcona County, you still might be able to get involved! Strathcona County Next Gen focuses its efforts, resources, and initiatives on Strathcona County but we welcome help from nearby communities and local organizations.
Positions, Roles and Responsibilities
Youth and young adults are the leaders here! You will be helping to determine the exact roles and positions that will make up the Next Gen leadership team. Roles can be created based on your strengths, interests and areas you want to build skills in and based on conversations with you about what roles you think are needed to create the action you want to see in the community. Examples of roles and responsibilities could include events lead, communications lead, youth liaison, young adult liaison, etc.
We anticipate an approximately once-a-month meeting commitment.
We anticipate that there will be opportunities to volunteer to contribute additional time to help plan specific events, initiatives, etc.
We're a group that's always evolving so don't expect to be doing the same thing everyday.

We know that this can all sound like a lot of commitment.

Our meetings are open to everyone and, if you're not interested in getting involved further or coming back, it's all good!
