JCI Winnipeg Partners With Aboriginal Youth Opportunities

JCI Winnipeg Partners With Aboriginal Youth Opportunities at Meet Me at the Bell Tower on August 21st

Meet me at the Bell Tower gathering at the corner of Selkirk and Powers, in Winnipeg.

JCI Winnipeg is continuing its networking and outreach with Winnipeg’s youth leadership in 2015 by hosting a Month End Mixer with Aboriginal Youth Opportunities (AYO!) on August 21st. Jon the Facebook event here : JCI at the Bell Tower.

Young entrepreneurs are stepping up to lead Winnipeg’s emergence as one of Canada’s most exciting cities to live and do business. Across the city, bold new ideas are being developed by a new generation of entrepreneurs, with the help of a strong network of mentors and guides to help them succeed. As one of the most impactful organizations currently operating in the North End, AYO! works to empower young people and help develop their dreams into a reality.

One exciting event that has been taking place since 2011 is Meet Me at the Bell Tower, hosted by the passionate Michael Champagne. Every Friday at 6pm, community members get together on Selkirk Avenue to strengthen their networks and talk about their vision for their neighbourhood and city.

JCI will be partnering with AYO! on August 21st to host a Meet Me at the Bell Tower conversation about getting youth involved in leadership and entrepreneurship. Anyone who is interested in being part of the discussion will be welcome, and JCI Winnipeg is looking forward to meeting with active AYO! members to help them develop their leadership goals.

Meet Me at the Bell Tower takes place Fridays at 6pm at Selkirk and Powers, and is open to anyone interested in attending. For more details, check the hashtag #BellTowerFamily. And don’t forget to follow @JCIWinnipeg for more details on our joint event on August 21st!

Aboriginal Youth Opportunities began in March 2010, has developed relationships with organizations, media partners and businesses to empower youth in Winnipeg's North End. AYO's goal is quite simple, unite people who wish to see a better North End, empower youth to dream and to help them make them a reality.
