A variety of programs are run across the province, including cultural enrichment programming, life skills programming, and weekly youth groups for the Northern, Central, and Southern regions.

Occasional large-scale, province-wide events aim to bring together Métis youth from across Alberta.

The Youth Department of the Otipemisiwak Métis Government is committed to enriching the lives of Métis youth by providing programs and services that serve their distinct needs.
