Involving youth in Indigenous Guardian programs is a great way to mentor young people while helping them to build confidence through connecting with culture and community. At the same time, youth working or interacting with Indigenous Guardians gain practical experience on lands and waters, and build applied leadership skills.Hear from Zahra Remtulla (On the Lands Coordinator for Nature United), Vernon Brown (SEAS and Outdoor Program Coordinator, Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation), and representatives from the Misipawistik Cree Nation Guardian program. These guest speakers will share tips and insights about how they engage youth in their Indigenous Guardian Programs.  You will also have a chance to chat with other Indigenous Nations, to share and brainstorm ways to engage youth in your Guardian Program activities.
