NCFNG Quebec Region Assists Wemotaci Youth Council
On November 22nd, 2011, the NCFNG Quebec Region facilitated a second session of the Emerging Leadership program with the Wemotaci Youth Council.
Outcomes of this second engagement include increased awareness of the roles and responsibilities of the Youth council. Further, a Youth council was created and a facilitated visioning exercise assisted the council in setting priorities for moving forward. The Wemotaci Youth Council held its first meeting in December 2011.
Engaging young First Nation citizens is a fundamental part of planning for effective self-governance. NCFNG delivers youth sessions right in First Nations communities and designs each session with the Nation, based on the Nation’s needs and end goals. The sessions help youth to determine how they can become engaged in Nation rebuilding and leaves them with an action plan for positive change.
