Local Youth Facilitators: Local Facilitators are young people between 14 and 24 years of age who guide the planning for all of the events happening in the area with the assistance of adult supports. Our local leaders are involved in, planning events, making posters, learning how to budget our expenses, shopping for supplies and getting the word out.
