Get Heard: Regional Rural Youth Dialogue on Employment, Education and Communication. Rural Dialogue Summary Report (Castlegar, British Columbia, Canada, November 19, 2005)
Canadian Rural Partnership
This report is a summary of discussions that took place at the "Get Heard" Regional Rural Youth Dialogue on Employment, Education and Communication, held in Castlegar, British Columbia, on November 19, 2005. The "Get Heard" Regional Rural Youth Dialogue was organized in partnership with the BC Rural Network (BCRN). This Network was formed in 2004 to link organizations in rural BC and help develop responses to rural and remote community issues. Key recommendations from the Rural Youth Dialogue (RYD) included: reporting outcomes back to the youth; developing a communications strategy; dialoguing with youth on a continual basis; developing local contacts with youth-focused groups; and ensuring that community needs were considered in action delivery. The objectives of the "Get Heard" Regional Rural Youth Dialogue on Employment, Education and Communication--building on some of these recommendations--were to provide youth with information on education, job programs and skills training available in the region; to offer a networking opportunity to youth; and to solicit the input of youth and people who work with youth concerning the development of a youth communication strategy for the BCRN. The results presented will help guide the future actions of the Government of Canada in support of rural communities and will contribute to the ongoing development of the proposed National Rural Framework (NRF).
