We Matter is looking for young Indigenous individuals who are interested and committed to bringing messages of hope, culture and strength to their region (community/surrounding area/province or territory). You can be the change you want to see and be a part of a growing movement of Ambassadors of Hope across the country.

Create A We Matter Message!
It’s super easy and your story or message can help others. This can be done by creating a video, artwork (painting, drawing, comic), or written message (poem, rap, short story).
Your message can reach someone else who needs to hear it, and when you choose to speak up, others are encouraged to do the same.
Here are some other easy ways to get involved:
The power of We Matter comes from people like you! Whether you are an Indigenous youth, community member, ally, organization or business, there are so many ways to help share hope, culture and strength.
Share content on your own social networks using #WeMatterCampaign
Share pictures, videos and other content on your pages that uplift and inspire Indigenous youth. Be sure to use hashtag #WeMatterCampaign so we can find it and share it on our feeds.
Become a partner or collaborator
There’s so many ways to uplift Indigenous youth. If you have a project or business and you think we can work together and support each other, send us an email. Let’s get creative together.
Request Lesson Plans and Toolkits for you, your school, your community
If you’re a teacher, support worker, program organizer, youth or anyone else, we have materials for you. Send us an email telling us a little bit about yourself and we’ll help you bring We Matter to your community at no cost!
Invite We Matter to your school or community
If you want We Matter to visit your school or community event, invite us and we’ll work with you to make it happen. We’re here for you and we’d love to get to know better.

Take the #HopePact with your friends, family, school or community
Indigenous youth across Canada are taking the pact to spread hope in their communities. Have you? You can take the #HopePact at wemattercampaign.org/hopepact and order your bracelet, or send us an email for a #HopePact package for your school, centre or youth group.
Ask role models in your community to record and submit a We Matter message.
Everyone has a story and we want to hear yours! Record a We Matter message to remind youth that they are not alone and no matter how hopeless life may seem, there is always a way forward. Upload your video to wemattercampaign.org/upload
Create a We Matter “HOPE” wall in your school, centre or workplace
Create a wall full of positive and uplifting messages in your school, centre or workplace. It can be a place people can look to as a reminder that there is so much hope in the world.
