You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Future XYZ's Youth-Fairs
are a new kind of model:
* Youth-led * coordinating community participation * generating access to opportunities
Preparing for the coming decades with all hands on deck
We invite you to
Invite Us Forward
It's like a relay
4 events per state, each nominated community passing the baton on to the next...
Here's how it works...
You invite us forward by nominating YOUR community to host an XYZ Youth-Fair in your town.
XYZ's Youth Fairs are Youth-Led
1) Who is You?
Get together a group of Youth (age 11-24) and form a Team. Give yourselves a name! You will be in charge of this event application.
2) Go to our XYZ online application
Download our Guidelines, and work out how you can host this event in your town.
Grab hold of some serious Mentorship. Call on the town elders who have done events, check in with your city hall/mayors office/district council, your Farmer's Market Assoc, ~ ask for help ~ find the people in the know who can guide you to figure out how to host our Road Show in your backyard...
3) Nominate your community
If your community is chosen then your Team will be hosting the Youth Fair for your region!
4) Lead the Future
We will give you a list of all the other Teams in your region. Invite them to collaborate, and together you can muster all the support in your area, to build the local networks you need to develop access to all the mentorship, internship, apprenticeship and education possibilities that can help you to explore the kind of future you want to build.
Easy as 123, XYZ
We have a support pack and advisers to help you, so never fear, this is all about having fun!
It's about motivating some CPR, (Community Participatory Resourcing) kicking butt in your communities helping the Elders to step up to the base and make opportunities available to
Explore Your Passions, and find Pathways to Your Purpose
Be the first to know when the nominations gateway for your state is announced...
