“In MLG I found friends, a support group to look forward to each week, volunteer work, and I was introduced to Inclusive Leadership. I loved how everyone could make friends with anyone.”
Imagine young and old from different cultures, traditions and identities coming together in the spirit of giving to the community. The Multicultural Leadership Group (MLG) has been doing this since 2008 when MLG was formed as a way for youth to volunteer at the 2008 North American Indigenous Games. Youth and adults crafted gifts for visitors, learned about cultural traditions, 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 warm land for the games. MLG has continued with these amazing traditions, and has expanded in many ways. Weekly, MLG provides opportunities for our community to gather and explore our differences, and find our common ground. The group hosts public events, workshops, and dialogues that help to develop the understanding, through experience, that our differences are gifts that enrich our community, not problems that need to be solved.
