At the heart of the Native friendship centres movement are Aboriginal youth, the fastest growing segment of the Canadian population.
“The Friendship Centre Movement has honestly changed my life,” said Jessie Johnson, Alberta representative on the National Aboriginal Youth Council. “My life is so different — I have a place where I belong all the time, I have so much more knowledge, I have Elders to talk to and I have so many people that are just rooting for me and rooting for all the youth in Canada.”

The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) is looking for Aboriginal youth to produce 30-second or 1 minute PSA’s about Human Trafficking of Aboriginal People in Canada. Human Trafficking is happening in First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities and in urban centers. We need to speak up and speak out on this issue. Aboriginal youth are at highest risk of being victims of human trafficking, and the NAFC believes it’s important to make sure Aboriginal youth are involved in creating strong messages on this serious issue. If you’re interested, and think you have the skills – here’s what you need to do: Fill out an application form, storyboard and budget (found on the NAFC’s website: www.nafc.ca) Submit it by July 26, 2013.
The AAYC will be fundraising throughout the year to help send AAYC members to the 2014 NAFC Youth Forum in Vancouver BC. Please help us through monetary donations or by purchasing the various items we have for sale at quarterly meetings. Thank you for being awesome!
