Gathering Our Voices

Indigenous Youth Leadership Training

Gathering Our Voices is a youth event held annually in BC. The event is co-hosted by the BCAAFC; the Provincial Aboriginal Youth Council (PAYC); and the local Friendship Centre.

The main goal of GOV is to create a supportive space for Indigenous youth to learn new skills, build relationships, and make cultural connections among their peers. The event is a celebration of Indigenous youth across Canada—recognizing their leadership skills, ambition, and ability to shape the future.

GOV 2019 sold out in less than 13 minutes— evidence that youth are keen for opportunities to collaborate with their peers and expand their knowledge and skills.

The location of GOV changes each year to increase the accessibility of the event to youth in different regions around the province. Collaboration is a key part of the GOV planning process and each year the GOV Co-Hosts look forward to connecting with the host nations and community members to ensure the event is a success.

Does GOV sound like something you want to be a part of?
