The 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, nurturing a sense of belonging and connection to their culture and community.



We run a variety of programs across the province, including cultural enrichment programming, life skills programming, and weekly youth groups for the Northern, Central, and Southern regions. Our team is also responsible for developing large-scale, province-wide events that aim to bring together Métis youth from across Alberta.
