How We Involve Youth

Our office is always looking for ways to involve young people in our work. We want young people to be a part of what we do. We want to hear their concerns, discuss their ideas and share their thoughts with decision makers. Ideally, we want children and youth to participate in our office so that:

  • their perspectives are included in discussions and decisions about them

  • they own solutions to matters that affect them

  • they learn new skills and gain confidence in advocating for themselves

  • our office, decision-makers and other adults become open to their perspectives

  • society develops a wider acceptance of children and youth as active citizens


We work with youth in several ways. These include:

  • engaging with established Nunavut and Inuit youth organizations

  • seeking feedback from all children and youth who access our office

  • promoting summer youth employment in our office

  • seeking input from youth in the production of our office materials
