Youth Seat online


What is the Youth Seat?

The Youth Seat was created in 2019 to make sure you participate in creating the guidelines and making important decisions about Oxfam’s youth activities in Quebec. These include the World Walk, the Magasin du Monde (World Shop), our workshops, and more. We want to ensure our programming is developed BY, FOR and WITH you..

You can take part in the Youth Seat from any location in Quebec. By doing so, you will:

  • Help create, organize, and evaluate the 2021 World Walk

  • Become an ambassador for Oxfam-Québec’s youth projects, and work to gather opinions and recommendations from other young people like you

  • Help us to build a new sense of digital engagement

  • Help us create some new leadership challenges for the 2021 World Walk

  • And much more!

Interested in applying for the Youth Seat? The requirements are:

  • You must be between 12 and 17 years old

  • You must be a high school student

  • You must have taken part in a World Walk or other Oxfam-Québec activity in the past

  • You must be available for a few meetings. They will be held either online or at Oxfam-Québec’s Montreal office (your travel expenses will be covered)
