According to Wikipedia, Youth empowerment is a process where children and young people are encouraged to take charge of their lives. They do this by addressing their situation and then take action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes.
Going MILES have been to a lot of first nation communities, presenting in front of different youth groups all around Canada.
Our group consists of different artists. We have comedy hypnotist, motivational speakers, hip hop artists, magician, illusionist, native comedian, athlete, and recording artist. We use talents to bring entertainment and empowerment to our future generations.
To empower youth is to:
- Include them in decision-making processes
- Understand and implement their honest opinions and ideas
- Be willing to share your adult power and privilege in order to make the community a better place for both young people and adults alike
- Honor their voice
- Spent quality time to the future leaders
