Gathering Our Voices
2015 Aboriginal Youth Conference

Victoria, BC – The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) and the Prince George Native Friendship Centre are proud to announce that we will be hosting Gathering Our Voices Aboriginal Youth Conference on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh in Prince George, BC. This is our 13th Aboriginal youth conference and it will be held from March 17-20, 2015 at the Prince George Civic Centre and other venues around the city. The conference will host up to one thousand Aboriginal youth delegates from across BC and across Canada.

The conference will have multiple streams of training, activities and information for Aboriginal youth. Youth will engage in educational and training workshops, a career and education fair, cultural and recreational activities, evening events, a social enterprise “Dragon’s Den” and motivational speakers.

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.
