Aboriginal Student Voice

Aboriginal Youth Voice and Leadership
Youth Voice meets monthly with the aim of hearing from Grade 8 – 12 students re: challenges they might be face related to their learning in school and in the community.
Youth voice specifically gives students the ability to influence their learning, have input into policies and programs that might affect them, and demonstrate their leadership.
By listening to student ideas, we hope to strengthen the engagement in their learning.
Students participate in a variety of areas including school, district and community leadership. They discuss local, provincial and national campaigns and how they might attach to them.
Students may be asked to attend conferences with other youth around the province and may also be asked to report-out to school staffs, district Administration, Chiefs and council, and or the Board of Trustees.
Currently our students are working on projects that include but are not limited to: Culture Camps, Red Dress Campaign, Missing and Murdered Women in Canada, Spoken Word, Aboriginal Worldview, the New B.C. Curriculum, and many are involved in the making of a film about our district.
