Applications open for Next Up Winnipeg!


Next Up is a leadership program for young people committed to environmental and social justice. Their goal is to equip young people with the skills and tools needed to become effective leaders in movements for social and environmental change. We offer programs of varying lengths and we focus on 7 cities across Canada: Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, and Ottawa.

Application deadline for the Winnipeg cohort is September 22, 2017. Click here for more information.

“Next Up was created by a community of people who wanted to help emerging leaders (that’s you!) develop new and better skills, smarts and ideas. The program is intense. Over several months, we’ll dive into a number of topics and disciplines, combining theory, practice, deep thinking, and hard skills. We’ll look at some of the most pressing Canadian policy issues both foreign and domestic. We will consider where “progressive” thinking is on these issues and how to solve them. We’ll look at how change is made in society. And we’ll meet some of the most innovative change-makers in Winnipeg — from the non-profit, labour, cooperative, and public sectors — who are working for a better world.”
