Empowering a generation of northern youth leaders

We are dedicated to the development of young leaders in the Northwest Territories.
We provide unique camp and workshop experiences and opportunities for youth from across the NWT.


Youth Experiences

Northern Youth Leadership offers a range of programs and initiatives for young people in the northern region, aimed at developing their leadership skills and fostering personal growth.

Youth Camps

Our camps inspire youth ages 11-17 to build confidence, independence, and connect with other northern youth.



Campers spend 1-2 weeks living on the land, taking part in cultural exchange and building nature-based skills.

Fully Subsidized

Youth whose applications are accepted attend the camp at no cost, including travel to and from camp and all camping gear.



Northern Youth Leadership is committed to building and empowering young leaders in the northern region. Our programs and initiatives are designed to foster personal growth, build confidence, and promote positive change in the community. We believe that young people have the potential to make a real difference in their communities, and our goal is to inspire and equip them to become future leaders.



"I would like to say to other northern youth is to not get discouraged about anything, don’t be scared to try new things and to put yourself out there.”




“I’ve learned that people need to be taught differently or need a different perspective. This taught me to be patient, caring, positive.”



“I’m taking a leadership role in my community by performing and teaching kids to throat sing. I help my family, friends and anyone within the community.”
