Listen to the inspiring 2015 youth share their stories from the program.
The Native Youth Program (NYP) is a youth summer program that has been in place at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) since 1979. Each year, six urban Aboriginal youth from the Greater Vancouver area are selected to participate. Through a focus on cultural connection and hands on learning, they explore their own identities and gain workforce skills. Indigenous guest speakers and artists also work with the interns to help them complete arts- and media-related projects.
NYP is also the longest running Aboriginal youth program in BC with 182 students over the last 35 years.
You can see more projects from the program on the NYP blog.
