NunatuKavut Youth Community Engagement Project (NYCEP)

The NunatuKavut Youth Community Engagement Project (NYCEP) is designed for youth between the ages 15-30 to provide community services through civic engagement. It will bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth together to learn about reconciliation and decolonization. 

This project will help participants develop the leadership skills required for success in an academic and professional environment and encourage them to aspire to be leaders in their communities and our increasingly global world. NYCEP participants will acquire the skills necessary to operate a multimedia lab so they can share knowledge between Indigenous youth and non-Indigenous youth as well as between generations. The project will engage NunatuKavut youth through meaningful service opportunities in their local communities. At the same time, NCC will work with community groups to create a service environment that recognizes and appreciates the contributions youth can make.

Objectives

  1. Increase civic engagement by NunatuKavut youth between the ages of 15 and 30 through twelve-month community service projects. 
  2. Increase the capacity of community groups to work collaboratively and provide youth with meaningful service opportunities.
  3. Provide NunatuKavut youth with the skills and ongoing support to promote community life, NunatuKavut Inuit culture, traditions and history.
  4. Promote mutual understanding and mutual respect between NunatuKavut Inuit youth, other Indigenous youth and non-Indigenous youth.
