Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) is seeking Letters of Interest from our MNBC Métis Chartered Communities and Métis Youth serving organizations to host culturally relevant employment events for youth between the ages of 15 and 30. The MYGETS events will provide Métis youth with opportunities to cultivate important skills that are valued in the workforce. In particular, these events will:
– Offer programs that support Métis youth in reducing barriers to their participation in the economy through employment and training events.
– Offer cultural programming for the preservation and revitalization of strong Métis identities.
– Provide projects that enable Métis youth to realize their leadership skill and potential.
– Provide the community the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishment of Métis Youth at a traditional Métis Kitchen Party.
If your community is interested in participating in MYGETS, please complete and submit the Letter of Interest template no later than Friday, September 11, 2015 by 4:30pm PST.
If you have any questions, please contact Director of Youth, Colette Trudeau, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
