Engaging Indigenous Youth

Topic(s)

Description
Increasingly, Indigenous youth are being called on to serve on Boards of Directors, act as advisors, deliver keynote addresses and/or participate in events. We’re excited about these developments and want to help organizations engaging Indigenous youth to think through how they will support them in this work and contribute to their overall well-being.
 
 
Specific learning objectives for this presentation are to:
 
1.    Become familiar with the supports that you can put into place for Indigenous youth when you invite them to provide advice, share experiences or participate in events.
 
2.    Discuss how to work creatively and respectfully with Indigenous youth leaders and organizations so that young leaders are supported both before and after your event or engagement.
