Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network Info Session for Youth

The BCCPD has received the following notice from the Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN):

Join us to discuss what’s important in your transition after high school and how to get involved in leading others through the same transition.

Finishing high school usually marks the end of one stage of your life and the beginning of another. Please join us for an interesting evening where you can let us know what’s important to you as you plan what you will do after you graduate high school!

We will be holding an info session to learn more from young people about what would be most helpful to them as they face life after graduation. Using your feedback, we’re going to improve our workshop that guides youth with a disability through this transition process.

We’re also looking for youth leaders who are interested in continuing to help guide us in our work. This will help us to develop useful and accessible information that will assist young people with disabilities, their families, and support networks make good choices.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Youth from 16-29
If you have already finished school, or will soon be facing graduation, we are interested in hearing from you about your experiences, ideas, hopes and fears.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
We want to make sure that our resources include a youth perspective and are developed by youth, for youth!

WHEN?
September 19th, 2013 from 6:30-8:30pm

Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion
2702 Norland Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5N 3A6

Youth evaluators needed for new financial literacy comic book

Time sensitive!

Sean Muir, Executive Director of The Healthy Aboriginal Network, is seeking assistance from youth in evaluating a new financial literacy comic book, The Game Plan. If you work with youth and can help (evaluations must be completed this Friday, August 16th), please see details from Sean below.

Financial literacy comic book evaluation
We are evaluating The Game Plan this week. Hard copies have gone out to several organizations across Canada but being summer, access to youth is a challenge. So just to make sure we have enough response we are wondering if there are any organizations that are willing to have their youth answer a short online pre-test, have their youth read the comic digitally (I’ll email you a PDF. Don’t use the one on our website – it’s just a preview) and then answer another short test after reading the book. The deadline for the online feedback is Friday, August 16th. We will be immensely grateful if you’re able to help. The questionnaires can be found at:

Pre-test survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/PYRLDLD
Post-test survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/PYBD23Y
