YouthSpeak opens communications with Summerland Youth

YouthSpeak, a project of the Summerland Asset Development Initiative (S.A.D.I.), is an opportunity for community members to witness youth speak about the challenges and changes they face as well as their hopes and dreams.

The sometimes unheard voices of youth will be showcased at a new event Monday.

YouthSpeak, a project of the  Summerland Asset Development Initiative (S.A.D.I.), is an opportunity for community members to witness youth speak about the challenges and changes they face as well as their hopes and dreams.

YouthSpeak runs from 8 to 10 p.m. with the young artists performing or contributing in one of four areas: music, spoken word, visual arts or video.

As an extra incentive there will be judges to assess youth in each category. Prizes will be awarded based on the quality and effort of their contribution.

Entrance to the event is $5 with all proceeds going to S.A.D.I. and more activities like this one. And before YouthSpeak kicks off at 8 p.m., there will be two more events, starting with the group’s yearly volunteer and sponsor appreciation barbecue at 6 p.m. followed by their annual general meeting at 7 p.m. all community members are invited to attend.

All three events will be held at S.A.D.I. Unity Youth Club at 9117 Prairie Valley Rd.

That’s also where more information can be found about S.A.D.I and the activities the organizations offers as well as by phone at  250-494-9722. A calendar can also be found online at www.sadi.ca.
