IDEA Inc. has a focus. That focus is today’s youth – both refugees and immigrants. The goal?
To empower and support newcomer and Canadian youth to become the next generation of leaders. A key tool is IDEA’ s annual Youth Diversity Summit where attendees from schools and the community at large receive training in topics unique to the challenges youth face: how to deal with culture shock, networking opportunities, volunteer experience and the ultimate pay off “Building a Better Manitoba Together”. The lessons learned at the Summit are taken by attendees to their schools and communities where IDEA leadership groups spread the message of inclusion, diversity and equality throughout Manitoba.
