What
SEYA is a youth led, youth run group who work together to make a positive difference in the community through active participation. They organize events to showcase youth talents, creativity and ideas (ex. Annual Ruckus Fashion and Talent Showcase). SEYA youth also host workshops on leadership, skills development, teamwork, youth issues and create opportunities for experiential learning (ie learning by "doing"). SEYA's long term vision is to provide ongoing opportunities for advocacy, civic engagement, and volunteer hours. This is to support the health and capacity of the youth here in the Lakeshore.

SEYA's currently creating, implementing and evaluating workshops on goal setting, anti-bullying, time management, healthy living and achieving success. All workshops are created and delivered by youth. If you're interested in having SEYA leaders facilitate a workshop, feel free to contact us for more information.
