Through the Spirit Seekers Youth Conference project, they were able to bring together over two hundred youth from across northern Alberta, BC, NT, and SASK. Through their belief of “for youth, by youth” motto, they created a committee of thirteen Indigenous youth who guided the event planning process from start to finish. This event gives community members (aging from 18-68) to volunteer and learn about cultural teachings in a safe manner.
The next event is in March 2020 and they are accepting volunteers for the event. Community Foundation employees helped with volunteering in 2019 and found it very rewarding and informative. Follow this link to volunteer – https://spiritseekersyouth.wordpress.com/volunteers-wanted/
