Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity, valued at $2,500, for Canada young adults, ages 18-32, to participate in a leadership development program in Winnipeg. The program will provide participants with needed skills and will challenge them with new ways of thinking, and will include provocative speakers, inspiring mentors and fascinating guests.

Participants will learn skills in areas like media relations, issue framing, the use of story in social change work, fundraising and facilitation and meet people working in different areas of public policy and social change. They will also connect and work with people in participating cities doing innovative social and environmental change work. The goal is to equip you with the skills and tools needed to become an effective leader in movements for social and environmental change.

The sessions will be delivered by the Next Up Coordinator and by guest presenters from the Next Up Network and civil society, labor, public and business sectors.

Participants will:

• Attend one evening session per week
• Attend one day-long weekend session per month (generally on Saturday)
• Connect with various community leaders during mutually convenient times
• Get involved with your cohort and community to explore issues you’re passionate and curious about

The program was designed with an understanding that the people in it would have a life: work, school, family and many combinations thereof. That’s why the sessions take place in the evenings and on weekends. Next Up also requires a strong time commitment and applicants should be thinking about how they will make time for the program should they be accepted.
