TURN YOUR PASSION INTO ACTION TAKE YOUR PROJECT TO THE NEXT LEVEL Spring Into Action is a leadership camp for young Nova Scotians who've demonstrated their commitment to activating their passions and skills, and want to make positive change in their communities NOW! During the three days together we will - explore personal passions - discover community assets and needs - learn leaderships skills like communication, problem solving and working in groups, - learn from each other and - plan for next steps to take action in our communities We know youth are already taking action - we want to share stories and dig into what we can learn and how we can grow as active community members. We'll learn from each others' successes (and failures!) and plan for next steps through story telling, meeting community members, discovering opportunities and sharing ourselves and our ideas.
