Ottawa's 10th Youth Action Gathering

Are you interested in making a positive change in your community? Are you seeking for a powerful training opportunity to learn about how to create an environmentally and socially just society? YOU are invited to Ottawa's 10th YOUTH ACTION GATHERING (YAG), a truly eco-responsible, skill-building, action-oriented and fun summer experience!

The YAG is a five-day camp for youth between the ages of 14-19. There you get to explore different venues for community leadership and how to take action on social/environmental injustices. While discovering our role in the activism scope, we can have fun through interactive workshops like yoga, sprouting, vegan cooking, alternative energy and inclusive discussions on topics such as green washing and anti-oppression.

Contact us today if you can participate! You can register online, drop us a line at [email protected] or give us a call at (613) 241 1615 for a registration form and more information. Also, keep checking the website, or the Sierra Youth Coalition Facebook group for more updates. See you there!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
