Gathering Our Voices 2016 Aboriginal Youth Conference

Victoria, BC – The BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC) and the Victoria Native  Friendship Centre will host Gathering Our Voices Aboriginal Youth Conference on the shared traditional territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt peoples. This is our 14th Aboriginal youth conference and it will be held from March 21-24, 2016 at the Victoria Conference Centre and other venues around the city.

The conference will host up to 1500 Aboriginal delegates from across Canada. This conference will bring together over 1000 youth (aged 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.
