We invite you to join us for the grand launch of the display at the museum on Wednesday, August 6 at 11:30 am. A Saskatoon Co-operative Network luncheon at the WDM, featuring a presentation by Breeann Heggie and Victoria Morris of some of the highlights of the display and history of the Co-op Youth Program will follow the viewing of the display.
In the 1920s, co-operative pioneers were aware that if they did not educate youth about co-operative ways, the movement would not continue to thrive. Pioneers began to use Co-op Schools to ensure the continuation of co-operatives and the use of the co-operative principles. Co-op Schools, now known as the Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program, has had over an estimated 42,000 participants and is the longest running co-operative youth education program in Canada.
SCYP hopes that you can join us to celebrate the anniversary of a program that has impacted the lives of so many Saskatchewan youth.
