15th Anniversary Celebration

15th Anniversary Celebration

In recognition of our ancestors, who used to celebrate youth’s upbringing when killing their first animal, all beneficiary youth turning 15 years old every year will receive a special gift. This project aims to positively celebrate the transition to ‘young adult’ life and encourage all youth to get involved locally because time matters. We want them to know that they have the power to make things happen and change.

Be the Spark Challenge

Be the Spark Challenge

What is the Be The Spark Challenge?
The mission of Be The Spark Challenge is to spread positivity, hope and love in the Nunavik region.
To participate, you need to share an accomplishment that you are proud of. This accomplishment can been done by YOU or by SOMEONE ELSE. The person who did the accomplishment received a Qarjuit gift 😊.

What is an accomplishment?
An accomplishment can be anything that makes you proud. It can be about anything. Doing something kind for a friend, giving your best at school and at work, or simply cooking a meal for your family. EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT IS VALUABLE.

The Be The Spark Challenge was a first-of-its-kind annual event hosted by Qarjuit Youth Council to share inspiration and spread positivity among youth in Nunavik & Chisasibi!

Our next Be the Spark Challenge will be in March, 2020. Please stay tuned!
