About LEVEL YPP:

LEVEL YPP brings together Indigenous and racialized refugee and immigrant youth from across BC to provide training over 8 months to shape and advocate for public policy that addresses issues impacting their lives. 

This year’s program started in February and will end in September, with 16 participants in total. By the end of the program, each participant will have a policy ask formed on a topic of their choice. The illustrator will work with the participants and our design agency to co-create an illustration that represents their project.
