Send Your Teen on the Adventure of a Lifetime

Leadership, adventure and life’s big questions. A summer experience for youth 16-20

This summer, send your teen to university on full scholarship for two weeks as part of the Ask & Imagine Youth Scholars program.

Youth Scholars are part of a small and exclusive group of up to 20 others selected from across Canada for this experiential University-based leadership development program at the intersection of faith and culture.

Your teen will:

  • Challenge heart and body on a three-day multi-activity adventure training expedition: deep in the water, up in the sky and connected with the earth
  • Build skills for leadership, teaching others, communicating what is important through public media or performance
  • Put together academics and big ideas with hands-on action in ways that could change the world
  • Experience studying at a university
  • Participate in spiritual practices to feed their soul, connect with the world around them and the divine within.

Your teen will be accompanied by a team of carefully selected mentors, taught by university professors and live on the beautiful campus of Huron University College, part of Western University.

Who Goes?

Ask & Imagine started in 1999. There are over 400 Ask & Imagine alumni across Canada involved in health care, business, music and arts, advanced education, community service, church leadership, working with youth and children and living a deep and integrated faith.

Is this just for ‘religious kids’?

While we are based in an Anglican theological seminary, Ask & Imagine is for youth from any background. The program is designed for teens who want to explore big questions with wise teachers and mentors. Maybe they’re tired of fluffy unsatisfying answers and want to explore how (or if) God and theological questions are relevant for their lives. Maybe they want to explore ways of living a meaningful, world-changing life in a pluralistic society. Wherever they’re coming from, Ask & Imagine is a diverse community of learners, seekers and adventurers.

When Is It?

The Ask & Imagine Youth Program takes place August 10-24, 2013.
