ROI seeking young change makers

GUELPH – The Rural Ontario Institute is piloting a program designed to prepare young adults to mobilize action for their community.

Up to 30 motivated young adults will be selected by application to join the experience. Participants will participate in a series of developmental, training webinars, be connected with one another on-line, come together for a face-to-face customized, experiential event, and plan a community Discovery session and Action Lab.

“This will support them to take action on a challenge/opportunity that they helped their community to select,” ROI officials state.

Additional personalized coaching will take place, as needed, either in-person, phone or via email.

Interested youth adults are invited to participate in one of two upcoming informational webinars on May 12 and May 13. For information contact  the ROI at
