Southern Chiefs Economic Development Corp. (SCEDC) is hosting their first Golf Tournament this summer. The goal of the Golf Tournament is to support the Southern Chiefs’ Organization’s (SCO) Youth Council. In the past year, SCO has successfully established the Youth Council, which members include two representatives from each Tribal Council region. In addition, SCO held an election for two Youth Chiefs, one female and one male, who will work closely with the Youth Council.
The role of the Youth Council is to work with leadership from SCO’s 34 First Nation Communities, and meet quarterly to discuss and plan initiatives, and to speak out on issues that First Nations youth face in their communities. The Youth Chiefs will represent the Youth Council and their decisions within the organization and at the SCO Chiefs-in-Summit and will be included as a vote in all motions and resolutions.
