Frequently Asked Questions

What’s new with the Summer 2022 PROJECTS cohort?

In collaboration with the Summer Bash, passion2action is pleased to offer an adapted version of the PROJECTS program as one of two youth leadership streams. Both streams are designed to encourage youth volunteerism and community engagement over the summer months. 

Service projects created as part of the Summer 2022 PROJECTS Cohort will be designed to engage other youth and community members at Summer Bash events, such as the movie nights in the park. 

What is the difference between the different streams?

The ‘passion2action PROJECTS’ stream involves teams of young people working collaboratively to imagine, organize, and implement community service projects at Summer Bash events based on their passions. 

The ‘Summer Bash Squads’ stream offers an opportunity for young people to gain volunteer experience by supporting existing projects. To learn more about this stream, please visit the Summer Bash webpage

Who can apply to be part of the Summer 2022 PROJECTS Cohort?

Teams of youth between the ages of 12 and 20 from throughout Regina are invited to apply to be part of the Summer 2022 passion2action PROJECTS Cohort. This cohort is being offered in collaboration with the Summer Bash with financial support from the City of Regina. 

Future passion2action PROJECTS cohorts will be open to youth from throughout Saskatchewan. Please follow our social media channels for announcements of upcoming cohorts.

What is the approximate time commitment?

To successfully organize your community service project and participate in other mandatory passion2action PROJECTS workshops and events, we estimate a time commitment of about 3 hours / week throughout the course of the program from June to August 2022.

Note that mandatory weekly sessions will take place on Monday evenings from 7 – 9 PM at the South Leisure Centre (located at 170 Sunset Drive, Regina). 

Do we need to have a project idea?

The application form asks you to provide some initial ideas for potential community service projects, but we do not expect you to have a project idea fully developed. We want to see that you are passionate about supporting the community and have thought about how your team can make an impact. 

Can I apply individually?

We encourage you to join together with peers and apply as part of a ‘project team’ comprised of two or more youth. Collaborating with others will help make your community service project attainable and will offer a more meaningful experience. While the form only includes space for listing five team members, note that project teams may be larger. 

When are the applications due?

Applications to be part of the Summer 2022 passion2action PROJECTS Cohort, offered in collaboration with the Summer Bash, are due by 12:00 PM on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
