The Tahltan Youth Stewardship Program aims to build confidence, interest, knowledge, and opportunities for Youth so that they increasingly see themselves as capable young people, future community leaders, and Tahltan territorial stewards. The program seeks to strengthen Youth leadership by restoring cultural and land-based connections through hands-on learning and experience. 

Project Overview

The Youth Stewardship Initiative aims to hire five Tahltan Youth from May to August of each year of the TSI. The program is organized to provide opportunities for Tahltan Youth to receive focused technical training and cultural education while working alongside Communications & External Relations, Culture & Heritage, Fisheries, Land, and Wildlife Directors, Elders, Guardians, local knowledge holders, and other mentors. During the program, Youth may conduct scientific and Tahltan knowledge research, work with local technicians, other Youth programs and young people, receive training, and visit and learn about places of long-standing cultural importance to Tahltan communities.   

Project Background

As young Tahltans grow and develop, they want and seek opportunities for leadership and input into Nation building and stewardship activities that will maintain and sustain Tahltan ways of life. The Youth Initiative Program will create an empowering culture amongst our Youth to provide them with a sense of responsibility, inviting them to contribute to the TSI vision, while inspiring them to pursue careers in natural resource management.
