Youth Programs


The department responsible for our Youth Programs and Services plays a vital role in the Metis Nation of Alberta (MNA), with a clear objective of promoting active involvement and communication among Métis individuals aged 12 to 29 across all six regions. Our dedicated team is committed to understanding and addressing the unique needs of Métis youth, aiming to foster a strong sense of community and preserve their rich cultural heritage.

Through a variety of initiatives, our Youth Programs and Services department provides opportunities for young Métis individuals to engage in meaningful activities, connect with peers, and access resources that support their personal and cultural development. We organize events, workshops, and mentorship programs that empower youth to explore their identity, develop leadership skills, and strengthen their connections within the Métis community. By prioritizing the needs and aspirations of Métis youth, we strive to create an inclusive environment that nurtures their growth, celebrates their heritage, and prepares them for a successful and fulfilling future.
