Next Up! Saskatchewan
Applications are now being accepted for the first year of Next Up Saskatchewan: A Leadership: A Program for Young People Committed to Social and Environmental Justice.
The application process is now underway for a new cohort of Next Up participants. This is an amazing, intensive and transformative program for young social change activists between the ages of 18 and 32. This year we're excited to announce that the program will operate in three provinces: Next Up BC in Vancouver, Next Up Alberta in Edmonton, and Next Up Saskatchewan in Saskatoon - so please forward this call to your friends and colleagues in those regions.
In each province, 13 young people will be selected who have some experience with social and environmental organizing but are ready to take their leadership to another level. Participants will develop life-long relationships, explore different leadership styles, meet some of the province's leading change-makers, learn new leadership and organizing skills, and be exposed to current and topical social justice issues and progressive governance.
The application deadline for Next Up SK is Tuesday, Sept 14 (deadlines vary for each province). The program runs between October 2010 and early May 2011.
Please forward this call far and wide -- to individuals, organizations, institutions and your progressive networks.Â Thank you in advance for helping us find the fabulous young leaders for Next Up 2010/11 -- you'll be thankful you did years from now!

Next Up is a project of genius (the global youth education network society), in partnership with the Columbia Institute Centre for Civic Governance, The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Parkland Institute, and several Saskatchewan organizations and unions.
