As we approach our eighth year, our little organization is thriving.
This year we presented 24 thought-provoking speakers, strengthened our partnership with the Student Council at the Gulf Islands Secondary School (GISS), and offered our first continuing education course.
Youth participation has increased at all Forum events too. This year, we hosted four daytime events at GISS together with the Student Council. The most recent event drew 900 youth and adults.
This important engagement with youth comes at considerable financial cost to the Forum. Please consider donating to our Youth Development Fund. All donations received are tax-deductible and go towards programming that engages and empowers local youth.
And, if you haven't already done so, please purchase a 2019 Salt Spring Forum membership. By becoming a 2019 Forum member, you'll help us continue to present world-changing speakers on Salt Spring Island.
Thank you for your generosity and support — and for another inspiring year!
