The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres is excited to announce that the 9th Annual Aboriginal Youth Conference Gathering Our Voices will take place March 21st-24th, 2011, in Prince Rupert, BC.
“A Vision of Our Future”
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
The ninth annual Aboriginal Youth Conference will attract up to 1500 Aboriginal youth from across both the Province of BC and Canada. This year our chosen theme “A Vision of Our Future” will focus on areas that have been identified as especially relevent to Aboriginal youth, including Health, Language, Culture, Employment, Education and Lifelong Learning, and the Environment. These important themes will be reflected in 40+ workshops, a 40-booth Career and Education Fair, Cultural and Recreational Activities, Evening Events and Motivational Speakers.
The Aboriginal Youth Conference will provide up to 1,500 delegates with networking and leadership development opportunities, best practices strategies, tools and techniques, and culturally appropriate teachings over four days. Youth can gather, share and learn from each other and from mentors. This is an excellent opportunity to promote healthy living in Aboriginal communities as well as to provide education to Aboriginal youth on many important topics.
