In partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH), the BC United Métis Youth Circle (BCUMYC) requesting applications for the 2008-2009 fiscal year of the Urban Multipurpose Aboriginal Youth Centres (UMAYC) Initiative.The primary goal of the UMAYC Initiative is to create a network of urban multipurpose Aboriginal youth projects to support and assist urban Aboriginal youth, aged 15-24 years, in enhancing their economic, social, cultural and personal prospects. Projects may include Aboriginal youth aged 10-14 and 25-29 with explanation. Projects are open to all Aboriginal youth regardless of status, culture or gender. However, the BCUMYC encourages projects that specifically target Métis youth.
The BCUMYC Committee of Regional Youth Representatives assess the applications and make the funding recommendations to the Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) who in turn forward the recommendations to PCH for final approval.
Projects that are funded will have strong involvement and participation of Métis youth at all stages, i.e., design, application, management, and delivery.
All proposals must correspond with the format of the 2008-2009 Proposal Application and follow the UMAYC Program Guidelines. Applications and Guidelines are available at www.mnbc.ca.
