"Like the rivers that connect this country, carving out pathways and enriching local communities, Next UP provides many opportunities for its participants to connect with their communities and question how they might create change.”
Jodi Lammiman, Next UP Calgary 3
Thank you for your support, ideas, and encouragement during this year of transition. Next UP’s goal continues to be to equip young people with the skills and tools needed to become effective leaders in movements for progressive social, economic, and environmental change.
Snapshot intensives, coupled with a shorter cohort program enable us to be responsive to community needs. In this time of increased polarity, I believe that now, more than ever, we need to support young leaders if we are to find solutions to our collective challenges.
Your support makes this all possible. Next UP costs approximately $2500/participant and we get by on a small budget. Your donations help us address accessibility needs, pay our presenters fairly, support young leaders to attend our programs at minimal (or no) cost to themselves, and plan ahead.
For every $50 donation made by January 1st, 2019, you will receive a set of unique Next UP "The River" cards, designed by Next Up alumna, Jodi Lammiman, and a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your gift.
For every $100 donation made by January 1st, 2019, you will receive a coloured print of “The River” by Jodi Lammiman and a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your gift.
Thanks for all that you do. Let’s work with empathy and act with courage as we shape a more Just and equitable society, together.
Selena, on behalf of Next UP
