VIDEA’s Aboriginal Youth Intern Event Celebration

Thursday, June 21st 2012

7:00 – 9:00 pm

Victoria Native Friendship Centre – 231 Regina Avenue, Victoria BC

 

Please join us in an evening of celebration of our local Indigenous youth who have just returned from spending 4 months interning in Zambia and Uganda! Come out to meet and hear stories from these 10 inspiring young people who are involved in VIDEA’s International Aboriginal Youth Internship program.

 

Through this program, these 10 youth have taken part in activities that empower youth, build new economic opportunities for vulnerable people, improve environmental stewardship and that provide for reflection on the role of indigenous youth in Canada and Africa, in shaping the futures of our communities. 

 

The evening will feature stories, music and photos about the work these youth have undertaken in Zambia and Uganda, as well as light snacks and refreshments, and a silent auction. Donations will be gratefully received to help fund the programme this year and into the future.

 

The celebration will take place on Thursday, June 21st from 7pm to 9pm at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre (231 Regina Ave, Victoria).

 

This is a public event and we encourage you to invite family, friends and others you think would be interested in meeting these inspiring young leaders.

 

Please RSVP to Lesley Palmer – lpalmer@videa.ca.
