The BC Life Promotion for All My Relations Youth Advisory Committee invites youth to make an impact
The youth advisory committee is looking for youth who are passionate about promoting mental wellness, interested in forging lasting relationships with peers, and ready to help steer the FNHA's youth-focused policies and programming. Members receive honorariums for their work in community and on the committee.
What types of things will you do if you become a member of the advisory committee?
Current committee members do everything they can to promote youth wellness throughout BC by leveraging their unique strengths and experiences.
Committee members have designed their own health and wellness campaigns, forged strong bonds with new youth networks, and provided mental health presentations for Indigenous culture camps. They have travelled provincially and nationally to speak at conferences and host workshops.
Members of the advisory committee have developed and delivered workshops on a variety of topics and activities, such as: #WeMatter, cedar weaving, dance instruction, safeTALK and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).
To get a better idea of the kinds of things that committee members do, check out this post by Megan Metz, a committee member from Haisla Nation, or watch this video.
To apply, you need to be 18-30 years old and have a teacher, Chief, council member, Elder or other community leader who will nominate and support you for this important role as a youth leader.
