Shakers are on the front lines, raising awareness to a problem in our community that needs to be solved.
Makers are creating and testing solutions to the problems youth are facing in our communities.
Uptakers are decision makers, political leaders, or those within influential institutions who can take solutions and scale them up to systemic, long-term change.
Democracy is more than just voting. If you're not 18 yet or there isn't an election going on, there are plenty of ways you can still be a changemaker.
- Attend city council meetings.
- Check out local public consultations.
- Keep in touch with your MP (find him/her here), MLA, or city councillor.
- Join a political party to shape its policy platform and even vote for the leader!
- Run for your student council or union.
- Participate in a protest.
- Sign a petition.
- Volunteer for an organization.
Oftentimes young people don't participate in things like voting because they're never invited. Our street teams meet with thousands of youth at events across the country to invite them to vote and then arm them with the info they need to make it to the polls.
