YOUTH-TO-YOUTH ENGAGEMENT

The 66th Truth & Reconciliation call-to-action invites community-based organizations to deliver programs on truth and reconciliation and establish a network to share information and best practices.

HIP’s Youth-to-Youth initiative is an innovative program aimed at empowering the next generation of leaders by uniting Indigenous and Non-Indigenous youth and inspiring them to take action towards creating sustainable environmental change.

Each event is uniquely developed based on traditional teachings from the host territory. Events often take the form of a seminar, camp, or workshop, generally 1 to 7 days in length.

Participants:

  • Build friendships with like-minded Indigenous and Non-Indigenous youth.
  • Learn Indigenous heritage, culture and treaty relationships.
  • Develop hands-on understanding of nature and what it means to be a good steward of the land.

If you are an Indigenous or Non-Indigenous youth (male, female, two-spirit, & disabled) interested in being an agent for change and currently enrolled in grades 9 to 11, this program is for you.
