Northern Lights Gathering 2018 - Welcome!!!
Update: Hello! We've had lots of responses so, unless you are being signed up through one of the Cx Connectors (Goose, Sabrina, Sarah, Krista, Debbie, Daryl, Sabrina, Devin) or get in touch with us directly, we suggest you don't fill in this form as we are almost full! We'll be in touch with applicants shortly. Thank you!


We're excited that you're interested in this year's gathering. If you don't like filling out online forms like this, you can call, facebook, or email us and we'll chat with you and fill it out on your behalf.

This gathering is for young people who want to: Connect with other young people, develop their leadership and storytelling skills, build relationships, make change and lead in their communities, and step out of their comfort zone.

The Northern Lights Collaborative is a group of people and organizations supporting youth in Northern Ontario, though this year extending to Northern Canada.

Funding is provided for travel, food, and accommodations - the more info we have the better so we can plan the activities and manage the budget to get as many people who are interested together.

This gathering is co-created, you get what you put into it! There will be moments of fun, but also probably moments of awkwardness. We consider this part of our values and how we do things, more here:

While we follow an "unconference" format, with some activities planned but no strict schedule, Oct 12-14 are the "planned" days, and there are options to arrive earlier if you would like to hang out in an unstructured environment, help plan, set up, etc. if you are comfortable creating your own entertainment responsibly and going with the flow.

*Please note that we would love to welcome every young person who wants to attend this gathering; at the same time we have limited funding and will give priority to young people who may not be well-supported or connected in their current community work.*
