Cynthia James Cynthia works as the Education Support Worker for the Ta’an Kwach’an Council in Whitehorse, Yukon. Cynthia’s role is to provide Ta’an Kwach’an citizens and kindergarten to grade 12 students with educational tools and resources for a successful journey through their elementary and high school careers. Cynthia’s Fellowship paper looks at Youth Engagement: Clan Law Education and Community Development policy in the communities of Carcross and Tagish First Nation in Whitehorse, Yukon. Though it is often mentioned within Carcross/Tagish First Nation culture how important youth are, there is presently a lack of engagement. Cynthia has researched various methods to encourage youth participation in the Carcross/Tagish First Nation community, and outlines in her paper how best to implement these strategies.
