Are you interested in being an Indigenous 150+ Youth Ambassador?
The Indigenous 150+ National Youth Ambassador programme is an 8 week leadership and skills building course where youth (ages 18-28) learn to be cultural curators. The goal is to provide skills and training for Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth to learn protocols for working with Indigenous communities, learn interview techniques, how to moderate cross-cultural conversations and address harmful stereotypes. During the training the participants will practise their skills by recording interviews and creating podcasts. These 21st century skills will provide youth with a good foundation for facilitating community events both in partnership with Indigenous 150+ as well as other community partners. This training programme will be prototyped with 24 Youth across the country with 12 youth participating in each session. Session 1 is currently running, and Session 2 will begin February 24th, 2020 to May 17, 2020. Learn more about the programme here: Youth Ambassador Programme summary document.
