If you’re in grades 9-12 and want to strengthen your resilience, grow your leadership and personal development, and surround yourself with positivity, this event is for you. After all, we are stronger together!

The first Youth Inspire Community Day on Nov 18th, 2021 was an epic virtual event that empowered, inspired, and connected students with like-minded peers. They heard from inspiring speakers, including 3x Olympian Miranda Ayim and RBCx musician CZN, and a few local trailblazers making their mark & driving community change. Be sure to check out the speaker line up below

300 students from across the country attended and engaged in meaningful activities and left the experience truly inspired!

Building off of this momentum, DTBY will be expanding the Youth Inspire Community Day experience in a broader “Youth Inspire Series” starting with YICD “Replay” in February. All students in grades 9-12 are invited to register and watch on their own. Once completed, you will receive a certificate of completion which will give you 3 hours of volunteer time.

Message from our Mayor

Thank you Mayor Marianne Meadward for your inspiring remarks and for opening our YICD event with the land acknowledgment.

why are land acknowledgements necessary?

Inspired by the 94 recommended calls to action contained in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (now known as the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, or NCTR), land acknowledgements are a necessary first step toward honouring the original occupants of a place. They also help Canadians recognize and respect Indigenous peoples’ inherent kinship beliefs when it comes to the land, especially since those beliefs were restricted for so long.
