The Surrey Indigenous Youth Advisory Committee (FRAFCA) is collaborating with IICRD to host an online series called “Coming Together For Hope” throughout April 2020. This will consist of individual sessions with inspirational speakers who can share expertise with the upcoming Indigenous leaders in our community. We want to continuously support youth to be grounded leaders in the community, and keep them inspired and motivated through this incredibly difficult time of COVID-19.

This will be offered for free to Indigenous participants (ages 14-24yrs). The session is a weekly, one-hour dialogue on with any questions from the participants answered afterward.
