Heather Moyse joins YDAY 2018 sum­mit

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

We are ca­pa­ble of way more than we think.

That’s the mes­sage P.E.I. na­tive and three-time Olympian Heather Moyse will share at YDAY 2018 later this month.

Moyse said she’s thrilled to be able to con­trib­ute to the growth of the Is­land youth through con­tribut­ing to the de­vel­op­ment of P.E.I.

“Achiev­ing one’s goal or vi­sion is very rarely a straight­for­ward

path,” she said. “I look for­ward to hear­ing about the vi­sions that these youth have for the Is­land and talk­ing about the mind­set needed to over­come the ob­sta­cles that in­evitably will pop up along the way.”

YDAY at­ten­dees will have the chance to par­tic­i­pate in a con­ver­sa­tion with their gov­ern­ment and their com­mu­nity, which will be fa­cil­i­tated by mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions firm Vol­ume 18.

The fa­cil­i­tated por­tion will bring fresh and re­vi­tal­ized con­cepts to cre­ate a mean­ing­ful and im­pact­ful ex­pe­ri­ence for all at­ten­dees.

Up­dates on YDAY are avail­able at Face­book.com/peiy­day and Twit­ter.com/ydaypei.

Since last year, the Youth Fu­tures Coun­cil has met monthly to ad­vise and make rec­om­men­da­tions on pro­vin­cial pro­grams and poli­cies.

Sonny Gal­lant, min­is­ter of work­force and ad­vanced learn­ing, said all 17 rec­om­men­da­tions from YDAY 2017 have been con­sid­ered and are turn­ing into out­comes such as ex­panded stu­dent fi­nan­cial sup­ports.

“Thank you to the par­tic­i­pants of the past YDAYs and to our Youth Fu­tures Coun­cil mem­bers for their in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions to the chal­lenges that youth face,” Gal­lant said. “Their hard work will help cre­ate a brighter fu­ture for ev­ery­one on Prince Ed­ward Is­land.”
