Youth Conference for 89th MNA Annual General Assembly

Posted on:

On August 11th, 2017, Métis youth ages 15-29 are invited to participate in a Career Exploration Conference at the 89th Annual General Assembly of the Métis Nation of Alberta. The conference aims to inspire and expose youth to a variety of education and career options, mentors, education and employment support services, as well as financial supports for Métis youth considering post-secondary education and other training to employment opportunities. Youth will have an opportunity to choose from a selection of break-out sessions with career professionals from a wide range of occupations to learn more about careers that interest them, as well as engage with representatives from post-secondary institutions such as Nait, University of Alberta, Northern Lakes College, MacEwan University, and distance education leader, Athabasca University about programs and admission requirements. The conference will also include Métis culture and team-building activities, such as Métis sash-weaving, york boat painting instruction, and an exciting Escape Room activity. Attendees of the conference will be entered to win a laptop valued at $1,000!

We’d like to thank Region 6 for generously donating the laptop prize for the Youth Conference.

The youth will join with the main AGA event attendees at 6:00 pm for a picnic at Riverfront Park and an opportunity to perform at an Open Mic.
