“You may be a droplet of water in an ocean, but the ripple has to start somewhere.” – Youth forum participant
Aiming to engage youth in creating positive change that supports the Greenbelt in their communities, 4-H Ontario creates the Greenbelt Youth Forum to bring together youth from across the Greenbelt for an educational experience.
High school students in the Greenbelt Youth Forum gather annually at Camp Cedar Glen in Bolton, for a 3-day educational session. Joined by youth leaders from the “Leaders Today” program of Me to We, youth discuss the significance of the Greenbelt through workshops and field trips and are encouraged to create positive change within their communities that supports the Greenbelt. Students present what they learned at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.
