The Indigenous 150+ National Youth Ambassador Programme (INYAP) is part of the Indigenous 150+ film and conversation series dedicated to putting Indigenous voices centre stage. As a partner for this program, Canada World Youth is reaching out to our alumni to recruit Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth to work together to build their skills as cultural leaders and changemakers.

Participants will learn to curate, moderate and hold space for cross-cultural dialogue. INYAP is a certificate programme that includes an Indigenous led virtual training programme where youth leaders between 18 and 28 years of age will learn:

  • protocols for working with indigenous elders and community members
  • to curate, host and moderate cultural events and panel discussions
  • to conduct, record and package broadcast quality interviews

These interviews with local Indigenous heroes and knowledge-keepers will be packaged as a podcast series and shared on social media and through NationTalk, Canada’s Indigenous newswire, helping to amplify Indigenous voices and cultures throughout Canada.

If this program is something you are interested in being a part of or for more information on NTYAP please contact our CWY Alumni and Events Coordinator at vferreira@cwy-jcm.org.
