Event description

Description

The Japanese Canadian Young Leaders of Vancouver (JCYLV) are hosting a visioning retreat for June 11-12, 2016.

We invite you to join us as we strengthen our relationships to one another and our group through two days of workshops, food, and fun. This will be an opportunity to think about the future of JCYLV together in the larger scope of the Japanese Canadian community.

We hope to explore questions such as: What are we doing for the community right now? What do we want to be doing in the community? How can we make these things happen?

Weekend activities will include icebreakers, workshops, cooking dinner and an evening social, and an optional sleepover. We will have two workshops on topics related to team-building, group development, and working through an anti-oppressive lens.

This retreat is for current and new members of the group. We encourage young people from around the Vancouver area who are interested in getting involved in to join us, meet our members, and contribute to our group dialogues!

Please email any questions to us at jcylvancouver@gmail.com
