The Northern Lights Collaborative (NLC) is an Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Youth Opportunities Fund project that connects people across Ontario and Canada. Our goal is to centre youth leadership and storytelling, decrease youth isolation, and increase organizational accountability to youth voices. Though the NLC focuses on Northern Ontario, we understand that youth across Canada – especially young people who are Black, Indigenous, People of Colour and 2SLGBTQA+ face similar challenges.
We want to create an inclusive network of young changemakers and help them by providing a resource centre to give the tools needed to make a better world for us all. We hope this might inspire or help other organizations that are considering similar policies. As a member, you gain access to helpful toolkits, templates, video tutorials, and other tools and resources to help you succeed with your initiative!
