Youth & Reconciliation : What is it? How do we get involved?


What is it?

Reconciliation is about all of us including Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal children and youth. We believe that reconciliation will happen when all people know about the history, successes and challenges of Aboriginal peoples today, and have peace building and citizen skills to ensure a better future for all people.

How do we get involved?

My first couple of days working with AYO, I found super positive and uplifting, straight from the start. I’ve already met tons of super positive characters and people who have large roles in the indigenous community. I’ve already been assigned a couple graphic arts assignments that I’m excited to partake in and am looking forward to continue working with the AYO Movement team. I also found that the people I would meet, would introduce themselves with open arms and are very fun to get along with, which is something I’ve never really endured in a workplace before. I’m looking forward to opening more doors and meeting various amounts of new people in the indigenous community and I already love working for AYO Movement!!!
