Module 3, Post 3 – Youth Organizations

The videos also made me wonder what types of organizations are available to provide programing and positive environments for Aboriginal youth.

AYO! is a youth volunteer group that provides relationships with local businesses, organizations, and media. They are looking to provide opportunities for aboriginal youth.

The Canada World Youth has leadership programs for all youth, but they also have a specific section for Aboriginal youth. It follows their leadership principles but is also focused on Aboriginal culture and knowledge.

The NFB has an Aboriginal Perspectives section which has a youth section. In this section is a number of different organizations for Aboriginal youth.
