Youth Council 2021-22
Our Youth Forum on the 11th of August 2021 was hosted online via zoom and acted as an open space for youth ages 18 to 29* to discuss the priorities of 2 Spirit youth that 2SiMS needs to take priority on. Several youth at the forum were elected to 2SiMS' National Youth Council 2021-2022.
