The NDWCC Youth Council has been hard at work trying to get more youth involved in the NDWCC campaign. We keep hearing that young public servants and young military members want more opportunities to network with senior leaders.
We heard you! And this year, we are hosting our own event; “20 Questions with your Defence Leaders” in support of Operation Come Home.
Join us and sponsor an item for an Operation Come Home Care Kit, which are given out to at-risk youth. Operation Come Home is dedicated to preventing homeless youth from becoming homeless adults.
If you sponsor any of the items, you will be entered into a draw to win an hour session with a National Defence Senior Leader.
To find out more about Operation Come Home and the amazing work they are doing with Youth please visit their website below.
