Indigenous Youth Advocacy Week
May 16 - May 26
The Indigenous Youth Advocacy Week will provide space for Indigenous youth to not only meet with government officials, but to do so confidently and well equipped with the lessons they will learn from the capacity-building sessions, mentorship, and networking opportunities they will engage in during the weeks before.
These sessions will also provide guidance on solidarity and anti-racism and equip youth with the skills to meaningfully engage with elected officials and senior policymakers in a way that emphasizes the need for policies that reflect the diverse and intersectional needs of Indigenous communities.
This online initiative has limited spots for Indigenous youth (18-29) across so-called Canada. It will take place on May 16 – 26, 2022, with a few prep sessions beforehand and a closing ceremony after. The deadline to apply is April 3, 2022
