Youth Public Awareness
The goal of the public awareness campaign is to:
– help educate the community on the number of youth living in Penticton, their characteristics and positive contributions, their potential, and the positive difference they can make within the community
– create broad awareness amongst the youth population about youth driven events and activities
– establish a strong youth presence in Penticton to represent the voices and needs of young people

Here is some background info about the Youth Public Awareness:
The YES Project Report outlined that there is a need for broad public awareness campaign to help the community better understand the needs of young people living in this city. Youth Advisors reflected on the current “reputation” young people are thought to have in Penticton, how they want to see that reputation changed, and what types of activities could help to transform negative stereotypes into a more positive image for all Penticton youth .
