This year’s theme: Reconciliation

The Youth Leadership Forum on Reconciliation will bring together 64 senior high school youth (ages 14-18) selected from across Canada based on their answer to the question “what does Reconciliation mean to you?”.  We’re looking for inspiration using whatever medium you choose that will spark ideas or strategies that could foster greater dialogue and understanding among non-Indigenous and Indigenous young people.

The week-long leadership forum will be held in Winnipeg from June 27th to July 4, 2020, and will be developed in full partnership with Manitoba’s Indigenous organizations with half of the programming led by Indigenous organizations and community leaders. Youth will be selected from across Canada representing the geographic, linguistic, socio-economic and cultural diversity of the country, with half of the participants selected being Indigenous.

Here's a closer look at what to expect!

Vedanshi Vala was among 65 youth participants who attended the Youth Leadership Forum on Diversity and Inclusion this past June 29th-July 6th in Toronto.  She, along with a team of participants who volunteered to document the week-long event produced a Vlog of their experience.
