Gathering Our Voices 2015 Aboriginal Youth Conference
Reaches Full Capacity 

Victoria, B.C. – The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) and the Prince George Native Friendship Centre will host Gathering Our Voices Aboriginal Youth Conference on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh. The 13th Aboriginal Youth Conference will be held in Prince George, BC from March 17-20 2015 at the Prince George Civic Centre and other venues in the city.

This conference will bring 1000 youth (14-24 years), chaperones, presenters and guests to network, learn new techniques and skills in workshops, share knowledge through cultural activities, witness performances by talented individuals, explore career and education possibilities, and participate in sports and recreational activities.

Over the four days, the conference will provide youth delegates with career information, networking and leadership development opportunities, best practice strategies, tools and techniques, and culturally appropriate teachings. Youth can gather, share, and learn from each other and from mentors. Involving the local community in the event ensures that the gathering meets regional needs and addresses current priorities. This annual conference is an excellent opportunity to promote healthy living in Aboriginal communities and support youth in their personal growth and development.
