Youth Taking the Lead

Northern Youth Leadership wants to highlight youth who are showing leadership in their communities by finding creative ways to connect with the land and their culture. Each Wednesday, we will be posting a profile of a youth taking the lead in their community. Youth can be nominated in two ways:

1. You can nominate yourself by emailing [email protected] with your name, age, community, a photo of yourself, and by answering the following questions:

-How are you taking a leadership role in your community?

-What is one new thing that you’ve learned from taking a leadership role?

-Why do you like getting out on the land and/or connecting with your culture?

-What is one thing that you want to say to other northern youth?

2. You can nominate a youth in your community by emailing [email protected] with their name, age, community, a short description of why you are nominating them, and contact information for the youth. If the youth is selected to be featured on NYL’s social media, we will contact the youth directly for consent and additional information.

Each submission will be entered to win a limited edition NYL t-shirt!
