April 23, 2016 – Your Voice Your Future Youth Conference – Heritage Park, Calgary
Lieutenant Governor Mitchell with conference participants.
Your Voice, Your Future was inspired by the prairie-wide movement 100 years ago to earn women the right to vote. The half- day youth conference gave Calgary area participants aged 15-18 the opportunity to talk about causes that matter to them and explore tools for inspiring positive change in their communities.
Breakout sessions were led by Calgary City Councillor Druh Farrell and Bow Valley College President Sharon Carey. The luncheon speaker was Canadian Women's hockey great Hayley Wickenheiser. Participants also visited the Famous 5 interpretive centre at Heritage Park.
The Lieutenant Governor's Office and the Legislative Assembly of Alberta Visitors Services Branch co-hosted the event.
