No Limits Youth Empowerment Day

The No Limits Youth Empowerment Day is a daylong conference event that inspires and empowers the young people of Fort McMurray and area to make positive choices, while providing them with a fun and unique opportunity to learn about themselves.

Complete with a motivational speaker, workshops, lunch and a closing ceremony, this event provides youth with a one of a kind experience that balances learning, discussion, and fun. Building on the theme of empowerment, this event is student led, with youth input playing a key role into the type of themes, speakers, performers, and activities planned. This event is designed around engaging youth and helping them develop both as individuals and members of the community

Along with the conference we have the Justin Slade Youth Empowerment Award. The award is presented to one youth at the No Limits Youth Empowerment Day. The award recognizes young people, nominated though their schools or the community, who are already working to empower those around them. Youth empowerment is defined by the award as an attitudinal, structural, and cultural process whereby young people gain the ability, authority and agency to make decisions and implement change in their own lives and the lives of other people, including youth and adults.
