District One Merigomish- Youth Program Survey
District One Merigomish- Youth Program Survey
Hi! We are youthLEADarts and we are partnering with the Lismore Hall Committee to reach out to the young people in District One.

YouthLEADarts is a team of professional artists and educators from across Canada who mentor kids to help them find their voices and teach them some skills to become leaders and mentors in their community. We often use the arts to reach these goals, but there are lots of ways to create programming focused on kids and youth. We want your opinions and ideas to help create programs that respond to those things that you see a need for.
