VYPER- Visionary Youth Peers for Equity and Revitalization is a youth-governed group for urbanized and non-urbanized Indigenous youth in the provincial BC area. Based out of Matsqui / Abbotsford Impact Society, a diverse team of Indigenous youth looks to foster the revitalization of indigenous culture for all first peoples in the BC area.
