Our Youth Programs and Services Department works to engage Métis youth aged 12-29 across Alberta. Our team’s goal is to provide Métis specific programming that addresses the unique needs of Métis youth, and provides them a sense of belonging and connection to their culture and community.

Each of the six MNA Regions is supported by a Regional Youth Project Coordinator who is responsible for developing and delivering programs and services to Métis youth across the province.

We run a variety of programs across the province, including cultural enrichment programming, life skills programming, and a weekly youth group. Each of these programs is designed by our team to fit the unique needs of the youth within each region. Our team is also responsible for developing and delivering large scale, province-wide events that aim to bring together youth from across Alberta.

Our Goals

Our goal is to develop and deliver programs, services and events that meet the distinct needs of Métis youth across Alberta. We aim to connect Métis youth with their culture and to help them forge long-lasting connections with each other.
