The Youth Ambassador Advocacy Kit is designed to enable young Canadians to become more active—both physically and as advocates for change in their communities.
Book #1: Accent on Living
Accent on Active Living focuses on what we mean by active living. It tells you what this approach to life involves, and how you can benefit from learning more about it.
Book #2: Advocacy in Action
Advocacy in Action shows how you can contribute to your goal of an active lifestyle by learning how to change or remove the barriers to active living that might keep you from realizing your dreams.
Book #3: Taking the Path: Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope
Taking the Path: Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope helps you plan your life and reach your goals. Although this process is designed to help you become an advocate for active living, you can also use it to help you plan your career, your education, and the rest of your life’s goals.
