Métis Youth British Columbia (MYBC) is proud to announce the 6th Annual Métis Youth Role Model Campaign to identify amazing Métis Youth in British Columbia. The campaign is designed to focus on Youth achievements and provide role models for our Métis communities. Métis role models promote healthy lifestyles, Métis culture, and awareness, strengthen Métis identity and are actively involved in their community. Last year, MYBC recognized the following Métis Youth Role Models: Bailie Copeland, Keenan McCarthy, Syenna Mitchell, Tristan Jeffrey, Jessica Dyer and honoured the life of Métis Youth Role Model, Micah John Messent.

MYBC is seeking to promote five (5) new Métis Youth Role Models from among all eligible submissions. In order to be eligible, Métis Youth role models must be between the ages of 15 and 30 and reside in the Province of BC. Métis Youth Role Models will receive $300 in gift cards, will be showcased on the Métis Youth British Columbia website, and will have opportunities to travel within the Province to Métis Youth gatherings and events.

If there is a Métis Youth you would like to submit to the Métis Youth Role Model Campaign, please send us a high-resolution picture and a write-up of a maximum of 500 words about them and why you consider them to be a Role Model in your community. Please note: You do not need to be a Youth to nominate a Métis Youth Role Model.

The deadline is March 9, 2020, @ 4:30 PM PST and Role Models will be announced on March 20th, 2020. E-mail your submission to the Youth Program Coordinator, Brittney Bertrand, at bbertrand@mnbc.ca.
