This presentation will explore the ways in which Alberta's Future Leaders (AFL) programming can inspire the courage and resiliency of Métis youth. We will build awareness of challenges to Indigenous, especially Métis youth, and then shift to positive storytelling of our experiences living and working in Fishing Lake Métis Settlement and Kikino Métis Settlement as part of AFL. We will demonstrate how youth empowerment through enabling courage contributed to change in these communities and how we see this change leading to greater social justice and resiliency.
