SAGA's 10th anniversary took place from June 21 to 24, in a festive atmosphere celebrating commitment over time and in all its forms! Here's a look back at this anniversary edition, held in Indian Arm and Burnaby.

A CELEBRATION OF 10 YEARS' COMMITMENT This year, 28 participants from across the province gathered from June 21 to 24 to celebrate youth engagement in all its diversity and across time. In addition to enjoying outdoor activities (kayaking, archery, high rope) at Camp Jubilee in Indian Arm, the young people took part in a number of workshops on the theme of commitment: an inspiring meeting with former members of the Board of Directors (BOD), a workshop to create a collective "zine" around commitment, or a workshop to learn more about the relationship between aboriginal languages and territories. It was also an opportunity for members of the Board of Directors to talk about their role in the run-up to the elections for the new Board, and to poll members on the development of the organization's equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility strategy.

On Sunday, June 23, a gala evening was held at the SFU campus to celebrate SAGA's 10th anniversary, while showcasing in an incredible talk show the community engagement projects carried out this year with the Connecte program, an initiative supported by British Columbia Francophone Affairs. Nearly 60 people were in attendance, including several partners, Connecte participants and former board members. We invite you to discover all Connecte projects on our dedicated platform: Mission de rêve!

**AT THE HEART OF THE SAGA: THE YOUTH COUNCIL'S ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING ** (IN FRENCH ONLY) The Youth Council's 35th AGM was held during the SAGA, on Monday June 24 at SFU's Office of Francophone and Francophile Affairs, and virtually on Zoom. By holding its AGM in Greater Vancouver, the CJFCB wanted to promote accessibility to enable more members to participate, as well as observers to attend. A number of the CJFCB's partners from the French-speaking community were also present at the event. Management and Board members were able to present their annual report to the 59 people in attendance that day, which we invite you to consult by clicking on this link.

It was also on this occasion that the two $500 bursaries were awarded to recognize the commitment of two graduating members of the CJFCB. Congratulations to Nelly Nadembega, a graduate of Sechelt's Chatelech high school, and Chloé Lukac, a graduate of Port Coquitlam's Pionniers-de-Maillardville school!

Finally, the CJFCB members present were able to elect 3 new members to their Board of Directors, who have signed up for a two-year term. The Youth Council is thus delighted to present its new Board of Directors, made up of : President : Claudya Leclerc Vice-President : Geneviève Poitras Treasurer: Nicolas Deporcq-Pomerleau Director 19-25 years: Anthony Hondier Director 19-25 years: Blanche Monabeka Director 14-18 years: Zoé van der Woude Director 14-18 years: Christina Monabeka
