All YMCA Calgary members, volunteers and staff are welcome to join this fun event. Just stop by Member Services to register, get your t-shirt and be placed on a tribe with a captain. The tribe that earns the MOST points during the competition wins bragging rights and special recognition on the YSurvive Cup!

What is Youth Engagement?

WHAT IS YOUTH ENGAGEMENT?

Youth engagement is the meaningful participation and sustained involvement of a young person in an activity, with a focus outside of him or herself. The kind of activity in which the youth is engaged can be almost anything – sports, the arts, music, volunteer work, politics, social activism – and it can occur in almost any kind of setting.

WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?

One way of thinking of youth engagement is in terms of where it occurs. The following are some different kinds of activities, organizations, and contexts in which engagement can occur:

• community organizations (e.g., doing volunteer work helping people)

• youth organizations (e.g., help plan events, run programs)

• music (e.g., playing in a band, school orchestra)

• sports

• ethnic/cultural organizations

• work/career/employment

• school

• social activism (e.g., working on an issue for social change)

• politics (e.g. volunteering for a political party)

• religion/spirituality

If you are currently looking for a way to become engaged and are between the ages of 12 and 18 years old, please contact your local Branch of YMCA Calgary.
