The ENAGB Indigenous Youth Agency focuses on providing cultural, employment, life skills, holistic wellness and recreational opportunities to Indigenous youth ages 12-24 . Programming is designed through Indigenous youth participation and works to build self-esteem, confidence, skills and self-determination.
“My name is Troy, I’m 27 years old and I have Inuit, Moravian, and Czech ancestry!
My story: I have been a part of the ENAGB program for over 8 years – since I aged out of ENAGB, I wanted to give back to the community, so now I am Vice President of ENAGB Board. I’ve loved being a part of the ENAGB and I bring a lot of laughter, knowledge of street life, homelessness and supports to mental health programming.
My favourite memory: When we say “We live in a small world” – I remember the day we all went to Ottawa for a cultural excursion, and I was able to connect with my biological mom’s best friend, it was definitely a hallmark moment for me.
Miigwech Troy, ENAGB salutes you.”
