Join the UBC Aboriginal Youth Learning Circle and the First Nations Youth Councils of British Columbia Association on Wednesday, March 13th from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for an interactive session to explore the topic of Meaningful Youth Engagement (MYE). Learn about the benefits of MYE and the different levels at which YOUth can engage. Then in our “Walk the Talk” activity, we’ll share ways that Adult Allies and Elders can best support you as an active youth! We believe that learning should always occur in both directions. Come join the Learning Circle as we share Meaningful Youth Engagement with you, and you share your wisdom with us.

First Nations Youth Councils of British Columbia Association (FNYCBCA) is a non-profit organization whose mandate is to:
- Promote the value of meaningful youth engagement of BC First Nations Youth
- Develop, in partnership with youth, communities and organizations, tools and resources to support the sustainability of youth movements in communities
- Support the development of relationship-building between youth, their adult allies and Elders
Serena Read is Nuu-chah-nulth, a member of the Hupacasath First Nation. Recently she began work at FNYCBCA as their Provincial Coordinator. Serena is eager to share the knowledge she has gained on meaningful youth engagement and hear back from you on how you would like youth engagement approached. Your wisdom will assist FNYCBCA to create tools and partnerships to strengthen the youth engagement movement and create greater opportunities for YOUth to embrace their potential.
