Halifax/Saskatoon YMCA Exchange
WHO ARE WE? We are Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE), a group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth who believe in a Canada where youth stand in solidarity to promote respect, understanding and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. We believe that having dialogue is necessary to foster understanding. Central to CRE programming is the need to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth through national exchange opportunities.

The Halifax-Saskatoon YMCA Exchange:

Canadian Roots Exchange is recruiting Indigenous and non-Indigenous Youth from the Saskatoon area to participate in a 2-Way YMCA exchange between Halifax and Saskatoon.

For five days, during the February 2017 break, the Halifax team will host the Saskatoon participants in their homes in Halifax. During the day will participate in group activities, sightseeing and events in Halifax.

Then the Halifax team will then travel to Saskatoon, during the long weekend in May of 2017 and then we will show them around Saskatoon.

Youth between the ages of 14 and 17 years of age, who are still in high school are encouraged to apply.

*Fundraising as a team will be a crucial part of preparing for this exchange as the money will help pay for activity fees when the Halifax youth come to visit us. Selected participants will be expected to attend meetings and help with fundraising before the exchanges take place.
