We will invite professors/speakers to share their field of research during the discussion. Students are encouraged to have discourse with scholars during our networking session.
We are looking for youth from the ages of 15-23 (highschool-undergraduate university age) to participate in our events and submit to our magazine.
No. We want to include a diversity of experiences and backgrounds as it is our belief that social issues can be dealt with in a beneficial way when as many perspectives and ways of life as possible are considered. We encourage you to attend our events and submit article submissions even if you are not in university or school. The only restriction is that you are within our designated age boundaries.
While we recognize that many organizations beyond ourselves do aim to spread awareness and involve youth in social issues, we think that we are unique in our methods of doing so. Contrary to other organizations you may be considering, we are not focused on one specific issue, topic, or general area. Our goal is to involve as many youth as possible in interesting, educated discussions regarding a variety of social issues we see in the world today. Most importantly, we want to give youth a platform to speak out on these issues and be heard by others. While other organizations may have similar opportunities, it is less common to find one whose main aim is to give you, a young person, a voice. It is our inclusive nature and our aim to include a great diversity of perspectives, education and background to tackle world issues that we believe sets us apart from many other organizations.
