Purpose: This 36-month project will engage young Indigenous women and men to address gender-based violence in communities in British Columbia, Alberta, and Yukon. Indigenous youth leaders will engage youth in their home communities to examine issues and priorities related to violence against Indigenous women and girls, and increase their understanding and knowledge of promising practices for addressing the issue in Indigenous communities. Through their participation, Indigenous youth leaders will also develop skills in stakeholder engagement to collaborate with key partners to develop and deliver youth-led, community-specific activities to bring about change. Project activities will inform the development of a print and web-based toolkit that will provide guidance on how to replicate key activities and best practices developed throughout the project and will be disseminated to Indigenous and youth-serving organizations and communities across Canada.
