Youth Leadership Forums

Experiences Canada Youth Leadership Forums offer youth from across Canada the opportunity to lead and be part of an intensive ‘youth teaching youth’ experience, and provide educational leadership development, and volunteer work experience opportunities to youth participants.


Youth Leadership Forum on Reconciliation

October 13th – 17th, 2021 – Now Virtual!.

During the virtual forum, youth will hear from Elders, Knowledge Keepers, community leaders and youth leaders about some of the inspiring work that is happening right now to effect change. Participants will also work in small groups to develop their own ideas and projects that address reconciliation as a priority and/or answer the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. The goal of the week will be for participants to come away with a project that they feel pride in shaping and have the confidence, and start-up funding to lead in their own community.

What makes this forum unique is the immediate financial investment in youths’ ideas as well as the after-care youth will receive from Experiences Canada and volunteer mentors following the forum. This will ensure that participants have the support they need to carry out their projects.

2019 Diversity and Inclusion Forum

June 29 to July 6, 2019 – Toronto, Ontario.

This summer’s national youth forum on Diversity and Inclusion, hosted in the Greater Toronto Area from June 29th to July 6th, was a huge success! But don’t just take our word for it –

“Being able to have those conversations and see what living as a Muslim looks like outside of my school textbook provided me with a new perspective. Something personal that I took away from the experience was what it felt like to wear a hijab. [..] While the hijab was being tied on my head by one of the youth leaders, I felt an immediate connection and a deeper sense of understanding than I had ever had before about the reasons why hijabs are worn and what it feels like to wear one.”
-Alexis Holmgren, on the Muslim Association of Canada workshop and Mosque visit

“I was given a quote to read [..]. As I shared her words, I thought of how I could never truly understand how it felt to live through this history. Thinking about this made me realize that despite my lack of experience, we can still help by putting in the effort to learn and listen. By doing so, we can promote the healing of communities.”
–Mikaela Wong, on the Kairos Blanket Exercise
