Seeking Inuit Youth for sexual health conference

January 7th, 2008     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

The National Inuit Youth Council, Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada, and the Ajunnginiq Centre of the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) are looking for Inuit youth between the ages of 13 and 30 who are interested in working on issues of safe sex among Inuit youth.

Inuit youth from Nunavut, Inuvialuit, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut regions are invited to attend a Pan-Arctic Sexual Health Conference in February 2008. Selected youth will participate in a workshop that teaches them how to: * create and deliver research projects in their communities * teach other youth about safer sexual practices * work with the three National Inuit Organizations.

How do you qualify? You need to be willing to do the following: * look around your community to see what kind of sexual health information exists: for example, is there visible information about how to have safer sex, where to get testing, treatment, and counselling? * write down what you find * report your findings at the Pan-Arctic Sexual Health conference (we can help you here).

If you are interested, please contact Jesse Mike or Qajaaq Ellsworth, National Inuit Youth Sexual Health contact:

Deadline: January 15, 2008, more info here.
