  • General Council 44 Youth Interns: It was great to have 6 youth/young adults involved for the summer. We had Elleena (from Courtice), Ellia (from Lindsay), Jess (from Blackstock), Olivia (from Bowmanville) and Stephon (from Oshawa) who represented the East Central Ontario Regional Council as General Council 44 youth summer interns. Nick (from Port Perry) was their coordinator for the summer and he worked under the leadership of The GO project and General Council Office staff. They did orientation, training and reviewing of GC44 documents and took part in the GC 44 online meetings in July. They then spend time exploring one of the 4 passion streams of Anti-Racism and Inclusion, Indigenous Justice, Gender and 2SLGBTQIA+ Justice and Climate Justice. If you get a chance to see them, ask them about their experience this summer.
