The primary purpose of the toolkit is to provide support to the youth in First Nations who are interested in establishing and running effective youth councils. The toolkit can be also be used to support the ongoing development and operation of existing youth councils in the First Nations communities.

The toolkit provides valuable information on the development and operation of a regional youth initiative. It outlines a four step process on the formation of a youth council, and provides resources and examples to support and guide youth in the development and operation of their youth councils.
