Come Celebrate Local Indigenous Youth this National Aboriginal Day

June 21, 2012


Join members of the community on National Aboriginal Day – June 21st, for an evening of celebration of our local Indigenous youth who are returning from spending 4 months interning in Zambia and Uganda!

Come out to meet and hear stories from these 10 inspiring young people who have taken part in VIDEA’s International Aboriginal Youth Internship programme.

Through this programme, these amazing young people have taken part in activities that empower youth, help men and women, girls and boys to understand their gender and human rights, build new economic opportunities for vulnerable people, improve environmental stewardship, and that provide for reflection on the roles indigenous youth in Canada and Africa are playing in shaping the futures of our communities.

The evening will feature stories, music and photos about the work these young people have undertaken in Zambia and Uganda, as well as light snacks, refreshments, and a silent auction. Donations will be gratefully received to assist with the funding of the programme.

The celebration will take place on Thursday, June 21st from 7pm to 9pm at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre (231 Regina Ave, Victoria).

This is a public event and we encourage you to invite family, friends and others you think would be interested in meeting these inspiring young leaders.

Please RSVP to Lesley Palmer lpalmer@videa.ca, or Lynn Thornton lthornton@videa.ca.
