This program is for youth (ages 13-18) who act as creative leaders in either the Greater Forest Lawn or the North of McKnight areas. The youth identify and address issues that are relevant to them in the area and then create a series of creative projects to transform these issues in their community. Youth engage with their communities to encourage positive social change through the creation of self driven community arts projects. In the past Youth Arts Action has created projects such as murals, sculptures, music, video documentaries, and multi media art exhibitions, but the direction the group takes depends on the interests of the youth involved.

Youth Voices



Youth Voices is a committee of youth between the ages of 13 – 24 years old called the Youth Community Connectors (YCC). YCC works to rally and engage fellow youth living in the North of McKnight communities, in creative projects and initiatives, housed at the Genesis Centre – 1000 Voices. These youth will plan cooperative social projects throughout the school year. In addition, YCC through Calgary Foundation and North East Family Connections Northern Lights Small Grant Initiative is responsible for reviewing and granting youth-initiated projects and youth-serving agencies up to a maximum of $500.
