Heather Moyse joins YDAY 2018 summit
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.

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.”
