ACTIVATE North Aboriginal Youth Leadership Conference being held in
Yellowknife, NT from March 24-28, 2010.
ACTIVATE North engages Aboriginal youth in creating positive change in
their communities! It also explores the need for youth-driven development
and helps young people develop relationships, support, tools, and plans
that they need in order to gain meaningful experience and make some
positive changes in their communities.
The goal of ACTIVATE North is to provide First Nation, Inuit and Métis
youth from Nunavut, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories with a forum
to voice their ideas and opinions in a safe youth friendly environment
while providing them with the skills and resources to contribute to their
communities in a meaningful way through sport, physical activity and
recreation as leaders – ACTIVATORS.
