First Nations Youth Summit 2019

In October 2018, over 100 youth from 51 of the 63 Manitoba First Nations, between the ages of 15-30, travelled to Winnipeg to participate in FPDI's First Nations Youth Summit.

 

The youth were invited to participate in the summit to give them the opportunity to learn:

 

1. How to write a proposal

2. How to develop a project plan

3. How to use multimedia products to capture their proposal concept

4. How to submit a proposal for funding of a community infrastructure project or youth community program

 

In February 2019, the youth submitted their project proposals to Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).

 

FPDI and ISC assessed the submissions and eight (8) community proposals were successful.
