Levi Wolf - Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre

Levi Wolfe is a 24-year-old Youth Champion from the Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. Levi exhibits strong leadership skills, volunteerism, and is a positive role model in his community! He currently volunteers his time as the Youth Representative for Lloydminster; co-chair for the Alberta Aboriginal Youth Council; and is the Alberta Youth Representative on the National Aboriginal Youth Council (AYC) for the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC). Levi enjoys working with local youth and engaging them in outings with the Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre. Whenever he sees someone who needs help, he does his best to assist them in any way that he can and help guide them to living a positive life!

Levi is currently a full-time student at Lakeland College in Lloydminster working toward achieving a Bachelor of Education degree. He is hoping to bring on more change for the betterment of all Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and he encourages others to realize that there is a need to change how we treat mother earth, in much more respectful way. Levi feels passionately about climate change and how it can affect all life on Earth.

When asked about his role as a youth leader in addressing violence against Indigenous women and girls Levi stated, “My role is to stand up for our sisters, to spread more awareness to males on how we need to protect our women, young girls. For they are our backbone to our Nation, our women are sacred, and it is our duty to protect them in any way or form. Being a victim of someone who has lost a family member, it’s hard to know this is very common and happening to our Aboriginal sisters, we need to stand up for our women more. I speak for our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women as well, Hiy Hiy, Thank you.”
