OPSEU International Youth Day
Toronto Membership Centre
31 Wellesley Street East, Toronto August 13 – 14, 2013
Dear Young Workers:
The Provincial Young Workers Committee (PYC) invites you to submit your application for the 2013 International Youth Day (IYD). In addition to welcoming previous IYD participants, we would like to extend a special invitation to those who have not attended in the past. We welcome all members who identify as young workers and look forward to meeting you!
This year’s event is called “Lobby for Your Future!” The focus will be to build strong communities through political action. The goal is to educate young workers and empower them to make informed choices about their futures in OPSEU, their workplace and the broader labour movement. Planned activities will be interactive and will equip participants with the necessary tools and knowledge of the importance of lobbying and how it can be used to bring about change for a better future. We hope participants leave the event with solid ideas that they can take back to their communities to make a difference.
Event participants will be selected by the PYC with assistance from the Equity Unit. The selection process will try to achieve a diverse group of attendees, representative of the young workers within our membership. Confirmation will be issued to the selected participants in late June.
Do not miss this opportunity to network, learn, share experiences and have some fun. Please submit your completed application by e-mail or fax to the Equity Unit no later than midnight, June 23, 2013. Please note that we will be using an anonymous selection process and will be applying the criteria as set out on pages 4 and 5 of this application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
