Young People Know is a five-part podcast series featuring the voices and experiences of young Indigenous leaders.

Hosted by Sam Bird, a citizen of Peguis First Nation and Program Partner at the Mastercard Foundation, Young People Know is a five-part podcast series that explores the principles of effective, meaningful, and genuine youth engagement.

In conversation with Indigenous youth from across Canada, the series shares the challenges, benefits, and opportunities they face in serving on advisory councils while working to create transformative change that embeds Indigenous values, priorities, and protocols into the organizations and systems that affect their lives.

“Indigenous youth know better than anyone how to meet challenges and harness the opportunities in their lives and communities,” says Bird. “The purpose in making this podcast is to provide young Indigenous leaders with a platform for their experiences, ideas and innovations. Now, our job is to share these insights widely, as each episode contains actionable suggestions – changes that public, private and non-profit sector organizations can make today to be youth-led.”
