Gathering Our Voices National Aboriginal Youth Conference
March 19-22, 2013
Registration Is Still Open
The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) and the Ooknakane Friendship Centre are proud to announce that we will be hosting Gathering Our Voices, a National Aboriginal Youth Conference on the traditional territory of the Okanagan Peoples. This is our 11th Aboriginal youth conference and it will be held from March 19-22, 2013 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. The conference will host up to two thousand Aboriginal youth delegates from 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, 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.
