The Youth Expo
The Youth Expo is a unique event designed to expose youth to new activities related to the outdoors, fitness, art, community programs, nutrition and overall general health and wellness. The Expo is designed to be interactive, guided by professionals and experts in various fields in an effort to educate and inspire.
The Youth Expo recognizes that there are many influences on our health. The goal is to remove as many social determinants of health as possible so that everyone has an equal opportunity to benefit from the event and walk away inspired.
The Youth Expo is about building a place where families can spend the day together and kids can try things they may never otherwise have an opportunity to try. The goal is to have kids of all ages walk away exposed, educated and inspired towards better health and wellness.

We are now starting to plan for Youth Expo 2018, and even though it is months away, there is so much involved in bringing it all together that we need to start planning now. For the past two years, as part of their co-op hours, students from the South Colchester Academy Options and Opportunities class have volunteered time on Expo day. This school year, the WTH are pleased to announce that the O2 students will be helping with every stage of the planning as a part of their curriculum. They will be responsible for helping with every aspect of the Youth Expo including, but not limited to, budget development, grant applications, management of social media, website design, graphic design, correspondence to corporate sponsors and vendors, mail-outs, marketing and promotion of the event. They will help co-ordinate with facilities, media marketers and other suppliers. Innovative think tank sessions on crowd control, layout design and prizes will also take place. The Youth Expo is considered a service learning project for the O2 class. We hope with this level of involvement the students will not only learn a little about event planning, budgeting, and administration, but will also come away from it with a sense of pride and accomplishment. We are pleased and proud to call the SCA Options and Opportunities students our fellow organizers and volunteers for this amazing event!
