2021 PSAC BC Regional Young Workers Summit: Being Young and Leading Change (application deadline extended)

** Note the Summit application deadline has been extended to January 13, 2021 **

PSAC BC is pleased to announce that the 2021 PSAC B.C. Regional Young Workers’ Summit will be held January 29 – 30, 2021 virtually via Zoom under the theme Being Young and Leading Change.

The objectives of the 2021 PSAC B.C. Regional Young Workers’ Summit are:

  • To gather PSAC Young Workers in B.C. virtually to learn more about our union, including its work on young worker’s issues, from past to present;
  • To provide an opportunity to hear from, share experiences and talk about challenges faced by those in leadership positions who have mobilized around these issues;
  • To gain skills and tools on how to effect change in our political landscape inside and outside of the union; and
  • To challenge participants to develop their own political action skills and empower them to bring these skills to their respective Young Worker Committees.

PSAC members in good standing and who self-identify as young workers (35 years of age or younger) may apply to be delegates and observers to this Summit. Priority will be given to members who are active in Young Workers’ Committees and with young workers issues in the union and/or their workplace. Priority will also be given to community activists who engage on young worker issues. The selection of delegates will take into account representation such as geography, Component/DCL, gender, and equity groups.
