The Young Canadians Roundtable on Health, in partnership with The Sandbox Project, Healthy Debate, and the Healthy Communities Initiative, are looking for youth ages 12 to 25 for a new project called “In Their Own Words — Reflections by Youth on the Pandemic Project”.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge and lasting effect on the entire Canadian population and dominates the national conversation. Many voices have been heard in the media yet, there is one group whose stories have not been told, and whose perspectives have not been sought: Canada’s youth.
We want to partner with youth from various communities across Canada to provide a direct platform to share their experiences/stories during the COVID-19 pandemic. These stories will be published on Healthy Debate to amplify youth voices and generate awareness of the youth pandemic experience to their fellow Canadians.
Youth story submission can be in any form, including written pieces, visual art, music, video, and/or audio. All stories must be submitted by November 18th at 11:59pm EST. Youth will receive a $60 honorarium for their submission.
