This national radio program is seeking corporate sponsorships to support the continued programming for the Y2L national radio program.
Young aboriginal people and leaders fully support the idea of this special program which connects youth with their leaders. A successful launch in December with national leaders including National Chief Phil Fontaine and role model John Kim Bell has promoted the goals and objectives of the radio program across this country. Aired on Bell Expressvu 962, communities now have accessibility with technology to participate in lively discussions, call-in to provide their views and opinions on historical and contemporary issues. However, without sponsorships and funding, the future of this program is not expected to run past March.
