Ontario youth, between the ages of 16-19, are invited to apply for Motivate Canada’s ACTIVATE Ontario Youth Leadership Conference on Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity!
ACTIVATE Ontario 2012 will be held at Seneca College in Toronto, ON from August 9-12, 2012 and will bring together up to 48 young people from across Ontario to ACTIVATE their communities and effect positive change through sport, recreation and physical activity.

This summer, Motivate Canada will be reaching out to its partners at ParticipACTION and SogoActive to work with their Community Hosts in finding 48 youth who are willing and able to represent their communities. Not only is this a great opportunity for youth leaders, but a chance for Community Hosts to throw their support behind young and aspiring leaders in their community. Participants will come back with the confidence and skills to help facilitate youth programs and events while getting their communities ACTIVE!
Motivate Canada is looking for applicants who have an opinion about active recreation, sport, and physical activity; are interested in leadership; have an interest and dedication to their community; have a desire to use sport and physical activity for social change; and are willing to share their ideas and work with other youth to come up with creative solutions to getting youth more active across the province through youth-led physical activity initiatives.
Please share this information with your networks- with youth, friends, family and others who you think might be interested in attending ACTIVATE Ontario 2012.
