● Capacity building
- Provide Neutral Spaces: As CRE, we want to provide neutral spaces to Indigenous Youth through
Advocacy (“__ as advocacy” Series), Community (The Network + Engagement Hosting), and
knowledge sharing (Reconciliation Library) so that they may feel heard, respected and
comfortable to share their worldviews, and to empower Indigenous youth to be agents of change.
- Engagement: CRE will have equity of speakers from Indigenous youth, and other community
perspectives. We will also host/facilitate engagement requests from government/ organizations.
The Innovation Hub, with support from The Network, is a space for Indigenous Youth leaders to
come together as a collective, share resources, projects, and amplify efforts.
