If you don't already know about Youth Week Calgary, you should. It's a super awesome celebration of youth and community here in Calgary!
Every spring, oranizations throughout Calgary pull together for a week and hold special events - everything from poetry slams to hip hop classes, teen nights, basketball tournaments, open mic nights, online video contests, movie screenings, yoga classes, markets, peace cafes...the list goes on - for youth. It's pretty sweet. Basically, if you are a youth in Calgary, there is noooo excuse for boredom during Youth Week. These events are all free (or almost free!), they are all over the city, and they are for you.
Of course, it's not all about the one week. Youth Week advocates for youth empowerment, achievement and involvement throughout the year. By bringing the community together to celebrate youth each spring, Youth Week builds the profile and awareness of the youth in our city.
So. Where will you be from April 21 - 28th? Here's the calendar of events for Youth Week. Check it out! And - like Youth Week on FB.
