The passion2action Team, in consultation with various event partners, have come to the difficult decision that our INSPIRE 2024 School Celebration is not feasible – as currently planned – given the extreme uncertainty surrounding ongoing job action in Saskatchewan schools. At this time, we regret to inform that the event originally scheduled for the morning of Wednesday, May 8 has been canceled. 

In its place, we are pleased to announce that the passion2action Team is moving forward with an alternate event – the INSPIRE 2024 Community Celebration – taking place on the evening of Saturday, June 22. 

INSPIRE is passion2action’s flagship youth empowerment event that aims to create a platform to champion young leaders and introduce students to new local community role models. This is a truly provincial celebration of youth leadership. Events in previous years have engaged upwards of 10,000 students in over fifty different Saskatchewan communities. 

As with all INSPIRE events, the INSPIRE 2024 Community Celebration will offer a platform for incredible young leaders from throughout Saskatchewan to share their stories and talents with the goal of empowering other young people to realize their own potential. 

Young people and families will be invited to attend the INSPIRE 2024 Community Celebration on the evening of Saturday, June 22 at the Conexus Arts Centre, with an event recording made available to teachers for viewing in classrooms the following week. Look for more information regarding event registration and announcements of speakers and performers on the INSPIRE webpage in the coming weeks. 

The passion2action Team looks forward to continuing our mission of shining a spotlight on young leaders from Saskatchewan at INSPIRE 2024 Community Celebration and we hope to make a full return with the INSPIRE School Celebration in 2025.
