North of McKnight
YOUTH ARTS ACTION TEAM NORTH
This program is for youth (ages 14-19) who want to be part of a team of creative leaders who work together to encourage positive social change through fun and engaging community arts projects in the North of Calgary.
Youth will develop leadership skills, gain volunteer hours or school credit, learn arts, media making, and creative thinking skills, make friends and connections in their community, and have access to job references and resume help. There are also free snacks and fun field trips involved!
Y.A.A has created sculptures, murals, music, videos, and multi-media art exhibitions. The projects we take on depend on the youth involved!
YAA is an initiative of Antyx Community Arts in collaboration with Aspen Family Services.

YOUTH VOICES – YOUTH COMMUNITY CONNECTORS
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.
