National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign: Youth Co-Champion Wanted

Chris Henderson
Chris Henderson, Assistant Deputy Minister (Public Affairs) and 2018-2019 National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC) Champion


As Champion of the 2018-19 National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC), I am responsible for connecting with all members of the Defence Team, encouraging their participation in the campaign, and communicating the impact that giving has on those who need our support the most.

This year’s theme Shoulder-to-Shoulder, highlights how members of the Defence Team, both military and civilian, stand side by side in carrying out our mandate. It also illustrates how we come together to support Canadian charities in their essential work to provide services to those in need.

While we will undertake activities to engage the entire organization, young members of the Defence Team play a critical role in the campaign as they represent the future of the NDWCC, and the Defence Team leaders of tomorrow.

This year I am seeking a Youth Co-Champion to serve alongside me throughout the campaign. The Youth Co-Champion will attend events, present at meetings, and promote participation in our campaign. This individual will be instrumental in ensuring that the NDWCC engages and connects with youth members of the Defence Team.

Benefits of this unique opportunity include: building networking skills, developing leadership competencies, experiencing the fulfilment of contributing to your work community charities, and learning about the various roles within the campaign.

If you are interested in joining me to create a culture of giving, please answer the following three questions:

  1. What does the NDWCC mean to you?
  2. Why do you feel that you would make a good Youth Co-Champion for the 2018-19 NDWCC?
  3. How will you engage youth across the Defence Team in this year’s campaign?

Along with your submission, provide us a photo and a Tweet that illustrates what giving means to you.

Send in your completed responses no later than noon on July 25, 2018 to: +Internal Communications internes@ADM(PA)@Ottawa-Hull.

NOTE: Interested individuals require permission from their chain of command.

The name of the 2018 NDWCC Youth Co-Champion will be announced on August 8, 2018.

I look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the new Youth Co-Champion and all members of the Defence Team to make this year’s campaign a success.
