On November 13th and 14th, 2019 Promoting Leadership in Health for African Nova Scotians (PLANS) hosted a booth at the Teens Now Talk (TNT) Passport 2 Youth Success XPO. Our booth was interactive and showcased information about PLANS and the many supports we offer students: summer camps, scholarship and bursaries opportunities, student groups and the various campus supports provided to students at Dalhousie University. Students had fun with our “Wheel of Fun”, where students had a chance to win a prize and had chance to win an awesome door prize.
This XPO showcased many youth related services, ranging from post-secondary education, employment, trades technology to health and wellness. Students were issued a TNT passport booklet when they arrived that allowed them to collect stamps for each booth they visited. Once they collected 40 stamps, students returned their passport to the registration desk to be entered in a draw to win one of the many grand prizes. This fun filled event also included guest performers and gave youth an opportunity to showcase local talent during the event. It was wonderful interacting with all the students who came to the XPO and we look forward to meeting students again at one of our summer camps or as a student at Dalhousie University.
