Testimonial

After reflecting on the youth summit that took place
a few weeks ago, I just wanted to let you know what
a life changing experience it was. I learnt valuable tips
and took away new knowledge that I will be able to
apply in the future. I have never experienced anything
quite like this conference that not only promoted the
Indigenous culture but combined it with an opportunity
for learning to take place. 

I find there is still so much to learn and to have
the opportunity to attend again would be greatly appreciated.
