About the NLC
As an initiative under the Canada Service Corps, 4Rs is setting out to create opportunities for youth-led reconciliation initiatives that support dialogue and action that pushes us beyond buzzwords, towards a process of generational change.
For each yearly cohort, we are calling together teams of 2-4 young people between the ages of 18-30, to join our National Learning Community (NLC) of facilitators. Together, we will build our capacity to take action on reconciliation in ways that are relevant to us as young people, reimagining the process of reconciliation through the lens of authentic relationship building, critical dialogue and collaborative leadership. Our hope is to weave together networks of awesome young people, with organizations and movements contributing to a healthier ecosystem for those of us moving forward the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
This work builds on what we have learned in developing the 4Rs Framework for Cross-Cultural Dialogue, as well as supporting youth-led reconciliation in 2017-18, where twenty-five Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth came together to form the first cohort of our National Learning Community.
