CVYC met with City Staff and Councilors on November 24th. The Meet & Greet started with a tour of the building. CVYC members got to walk up to the clock tour exactly as the clock struck 5 o’clock to hear the clock bells. Councilors and staff shared their favourite part of representing their communities which includes the ability to be creative and engaging with the emerging and changing needs of community members.
CVYC members shared their thoughts on effective ways for the City to engage youth. Delphina and Zara shared our completed sacred quilt that represented what CVYC members value. Shae-Linn and Kelvin spoke to our community asset map highlighting that public space is experienced differently by different folks based on the intersections of their identity. Rachel broke the ice using her activity on unlearning perfectionism.
The CVYC hopes to continue working closely with City Staff and Council as the new year unfolds and we begin working on our action projects.
Thanks City of Victoria for hosting us!
