The Youth Leadership Gathering was created as a platform for the nation’s youth to learn more about governance and leadership from the Chief’s Executive Council (CEC) during the Annual General Assembly (AGA). Last year we had 47 youth from all member bands gather the day before the AGA starts for ice breakers and land based activities. The youth then participate in the opening and closing ceremony of the AGA and then break out into workshops. These workshops are language and culture based and is developed to help increase the youth’s leadership skills and potential. A special guest is invited and provides a keynote address as well as leading workshops. Door prizes are available as well as camping onsite for youth. Registration is encouraged to help us account for space and meals.
