About the Event
This is a free community celebration and all are welcome. Please arrive by 5:30pm as food will be served at that time. Dinner will be followed by a recognition ceremony of our Chandler Mowat youth who participated in the 12-week Advanced Entrepreneurship Program over the summer. The evening will conclude with the official unveiling of Next Gen Photography, a youth empowerment project created by Hope for Community Development with the support of our community's youth.
Over the summer, 12 youth leaders embarked on a transformative journey through our Advanced Entrepreneurship Program, led by The Community Company. Over the course of 12 dynamic workshops, they delved deeper into the world of business development and community impact.
Through group discussions, case studies, and immersive learning experiences, they created the blueprint for Next Gen Photography, a social enterprise that will elevate the youth of today through the art of photography.
This Community Celebration event will be the grand unveiling of the project. We would love to have you join us in recognizing the accomplishment of our community's youth!
