Re: Badlands Youth Engagement Summit 2016
Dear Sir or Madam,
I wanted to introduce myself as the new Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller.
FCSS develops and supports locally driven programs that aim to enhanse the well-being of individuals, families and communities. A key area of focus is our young people.
There is a lot of fantastic work going on in Drumheller and the surrounding areas to engage, support and develop Youth in our communities and none of this would be possible without your enthusiasm and dedication.
I would like to invite you to the first Badlands Youth Engagement Summit at the Badlands Community Facility on Thursday 22nd September 2016, 6:30-8:30pm. Refreshements will be provided.
This Summit aims to provide an opportunity for a round table with groups involved in youth engagement in Drumheller and area and Student Council representatives.
We will discuss the many projects that are planned, opportunities for collaboration and other ways we can assist and support each other. This might be as simple as communicating about events, e.g. 'spreading the word' through our networks, or more formally, via social media etc; avoiding duplication; considering joint fundraising opportunities and more.
Having identified what programs are available, this Summit will also provide a forum to identify gaps in provision, discuss shared issues and concerns and help move us forward in the development of a collaborative vision for youth engagement over the coming 3-5 years.
Please indicate whether you are able to join us by completing the online Registration Form by 12th September 2016.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you then.
Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) Coordinator
Town of Drumheller
