STORMING THE ISLAND

Building & Showcasing Tomorrow's Leaders

What was once an commitment to a speech given by the Storm Group executive team has now grown to become a 2-day event complete with youth summit and festival.

In 2007, the Executive partners of the Storm Group had the opportunity to speak to over 600 delegates at the Government of Saskatchewan's Saskatchewan Youth Summit on the topic of “Making it Happen”. Consequentially, numerous community initiatives were started by the duo, including Storming the Island, the Free Festival for Everyone. Now, the time has come for a rejuvenation of the original Youth Summit concept and Storming the Island is the perfect facility for it.

Saturday & Sunday June 11 & 12, 2011 mark the 4th year of the event. Saturday will feature a youth summit with speakers, breakouts, exercises, networking, banquet, and entertainment. Topics will range from entrepreneurship to art to community service. Then, on Sunday, we will showcase the youth with a carnival/festival that they run. The youth will work as teams, learn many useful skills, show themselves off to the community, and give back at the same time. To maintain the unique twist, the festival/carnival will take place on Pine Island in beautiful Wascana Park.

... And now we need you.

Participants and sponsors are welcome to be a part of the even of the summer. Read on for more.
