Next Up

Applications are now being accepted for Next Up: A Leadership Program for Young People Committed to Social and Environmental Justice.

The application process is now underway for all four Next Up programs. This is an amazing, intensive and transformative program for young social change activists between the ages of 18 and 32. The program is offered in four cities across three provinces: Next Up BC in Vancouver, Next Up Edmonton, Next Up Calgary and Next Up Saskatchewan in Saskatoon – so please forward this call to your friends and colleagues in those regions.

In each province, an amazing group of young people will be selected for an intense seven month program. Participants will develop life-long relationships, explore different leadership styles, meet some of the province’s leading change-makers, learn new leadership and organizing skills, and be exposed to current and topical social justice issues and progressive governance.

The application deadline for Next Up Edmonton is Friday, Sept 16 (midnight). The program runs between October 2011 and May 2012.

Application forms and more information can be found at:

Next Up is a project of genius (the global youth education network society), in partnership with the Columbia Institute Centre for Civic Governance, The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and the Parkland Institute.
