Red Deer Youth Voice

Red Deer Youth Voice Strategy is a community initiative created to engage with local youth and to create a safe space for youth to express themselves and share their experiences in our community. This initiative includes collaboration with more than thirty agencies and organizations that work with local youth.

The Youth Voice Strategy was approved by City Council in November 2019 as a three-year project with a goal to build capacity while increasing youth engagement around community causes and civic projects. Investing in youth will help to ensure they feel empowered and valued as an integral part of the community.

Youth Voice Video Contest

In June we held a contest for Red Deer Youth – to hear your experiences during the COVID crisis! Entrants had a chance to win one of 20 $50 gift cards – all they had to do is share a TikTok video that shows what you’ve been up to since COVID started and use #RDYouthVoiceContest! We know your experience has been unique and we want to hear all about it.

The contest ran from June 19-30 and was open to Red Deer youth ages 13-18. Winners were randomly selected and were contacted directly on TikTok from the @rdyouthvoice account.
