Multicultural Leadership Group

Join our weekly drop-in group!

Imagine young and old from different cultures, traditions and identities coming together in the spirit of giving to the community! Cowichan Intercultural Society’s Multicultural Leadership group (MLG) has been doing this since 2008. MLG began as a way for youth to volunteer at the 2008 North American Indigenous Games. Youth made gifts for visitors, kept the Cultural Village clean and, most importantly, learned Inclusive Leadership skills for welcoming the more than 20,000 indigenous athletes, performers and visitors who came to our wonderful Warmland for the games.

Since then, MLG has continued with these traditions. Each week, youth and adults of all ages welcome people from all cultures, all faiths and all Identities.

In the spirit of community we:

  • Learn Inclusive Leadership skills based on the understanding that our differences are gifts that enrich our communities, and that everyone has a right to belong.
  • Explore, share and celebrate different cultures, traditions, faiths and identities.
  • Work in service to community through compassionate actions.

Come join us and be part of an inclusive community! We look forward to seeing you.

When: Wednesdays, after school until 5:45 (come when you can, leave when you need to)
Where: St Johns Anglican Church Hall, 163 First St.
Who: all ages, all cultures, all faiths, all identities, everyone is welcome!
Why: to have fun while creating inclusive and caring communities

“We are active, energetic, creative, fun and inter-cultural. We are creating a welcoming, happy, diverse and unified community through helpful, charitable services.”  (Multicultural Leadership Group, 2009)
