POSTPONED: 3rd Annual SCO Youth Gathering

The Southern Chiefs’ Organization and SCO Youth Council are proud to announce our 3rd Annual SCO Youth Gathering taking place from Friday, March 27th – Monday, March 30th, 2020 in Winnipeg, MB.

*This is the application form to attend the gathering and does not guarantee you a registered spot.

Registered participants will be staying at the Viscount Gort Hotel, 1670 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3J 0C9. All participants under 18 years old will require a MANDATORY chaperone who agrees to assume SCO outlined responsibilities for themselves and the underage youth during the registration process. All chaperones must be at least 23 years of age. Chaperones will be sharing accommodations and travel with their registered youth.

The gathering will include keynote speakers from Indigenous and government leaders from across Manitoba. Programming and workshops will include important issues and themes such as MMIWG, restorative justice, climate change, water protection, cultural teachings, and self-defense. For those interested, there is also a full day of Red Cross training taking place on Monday, March 30th.

SCO Youth Council elections for regional representatives and Youth Chiefs will take place at this meeting!

*SCO will subsidize two youth from every southern First Nations member community to attend. Accommodations, meals, programming, and tickets to the Manitoba Moose game are provided for registered youth! There is a shared travel pool, and transportation will be subsidized for one vehicle per community, so we encourage carpooling to maximize resources and reduce carbon footprint. Registration is first-come, first-serve. Spaces are limited to 2 youth per community to be fair and inclusive. We will assess opening availability further at a later time in registration. Spaces are limited.

If you are selected we will contact you and will require you to sign a Roles and Responsibilities agreement.
