Youth creating strong community and growing through service with The Hub.
ACGC's SDG Hub launched in May to engage youth in serving their communities through the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030
The Hub was created to help young people fulfill the mandate of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A project of Canada Service Corp, is a space for young Albertan residents to meet and engage in a meaningful dialogue, collaborate, and take action in their communities on issues they are passionate about. The youth will also have a chance to develop personal and employment-related skills, learn from mentors, and increase their awareness of the benefit of serving their communities.
The participants come from different parts of Alberta from as far as Lethbridge and Peace River; from a wide array of education background- engineering, public policy, nursing, and law just to mention a few; and have had different life trajectories. It was so great to see these diverse personalities coming together to discuss their role in building an Alberta that leaves no one behind at the late bonfire conversations, on dinner tables, workshops, team building activities and the group projects.
Over the course of the year, from June 2019 to March 2020, ACGC and our valued mentors will support the participants in bringing their ideas to life. We will also be holding regular sessions for these young people to deeply engage with the SDGs, connect with one another, network with our partners and support them in getting access to different personal and professional development opportunities.
We cannot be any more excited for them and their mentors as they go on this journey. Keep your eyes on our page for more updates and to get inspired.

Meet the Youth
On May 17th, ACGC officially kicked off our Alberta SDG HUb, a Canada Service Corps project, whose aim is to engage young Albertans in issues that affect our communities through the lens of the Sustainable Development Goals. To kick it off in style, we spent the long weekend together in the beautiful landscape of Jasper mountains, connecting, sharing our goals and passions, building community and laying the groundwork for what’s to come.
In November, we welcomed 6 more young people to join this initiative.
In total, 28 youth and 12 mentors from across Alberta have joined ‘The Hub’, and have worked together to create projects addressing the SDGs in Alberta. Initiatives range from projects addressing responsible consumption, to one’s aiming at protecting migrant communities.
