Find Your Voice
Find Your Voice was a project created in partnership with the Congress of Aboriginal People's National Youth Council. In creating the workshop series we piloted the project in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Moncton. Highlights included meeting Elders Jean Stevenson and Delbert Sampson and the three day retreat with CAP National Youth Council members and A is B staff in Moncton. Elders of the CAP community helped facilitate modules and provided ethical and spiritual guidance for youth about how to get involved. Finally, the youth leaders were part of an inspirational video that shows just how impactful this project has been on them.
The Find Your Voice project resulted in 10 workshops given across Canada to encourage Indigenous youth to become more civically engaged. These workshops developed into downloadable and editable toolkits, which are creative resources that enable young people to run leadership workshops in their communities and inspire their peers.
