*New* Time Auction: Meet the founder of Aboriginal Youth Opportunities - Michael Redhead Champagne http://t.co/uiz96s3vED— Michael Champagne (@northendmc) October 14, 2014
Michael Redhead Champagne is the founder of AYO! - a youth movement that has been breaking stereotypes and creating opportunities since 2010
Michael Redhead Champagne, 27, from Shamattawa Cree Nation, Manitoba, was raised in the North End of Winnipeg. He graduated from St. John’s High School, attended 1226 Fort Garry Horse Army Cadet Corps and has taken courses at both the University of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba. MC has been the recipient of a Future Leaders of Manitoba Award, Royal Canadian Legion Medal of Excellence and a Manitoba Aboriginal Youth Achievement Award; all for community service.
In 2008 he created the ARROWS Youth Engagement strategy which empowers inner city youth to facilitate relationship based training to the staff & adults of youth programs. In 2010 he founded AYO! (Aboriginal Youth Opportunities - http://www.ayomovement.com/) a youth-led movement committed to breaking stereotypes and creating opportunity. 2011 saw the Meet Me @ The Bell Tower anti-violence rallies that occur weekly in the heart of the North End on Selkirk Avenue.
He has spoken across the province about health & safety in his role with SAFE Workers of Tomorrow. In 2011 he began to act as co-host of a weekly talk radio show, Inner City Voices on CKUW 95.9 FM. He has recently been featured on Global National as an Everyday Hero and CBC’s 8th Fire mini documentary with the Bell Tower Movement. He was also selected to participate in the first ever Canada-Caribbean Emerging Leaders Dialogue as the youngest and only Indigenous participant.
The first video shows Michael speaking at Count Me In Toronto. The second video profiles Michael as a Manitoba Hero. The third video is Michael speaking at TEDxManitoba.
Michael's commitment to serve his community extends beyond AYO!, he serves on several boards and committees, including North End Community Renewal Corporation, United Way Of Winnipeg’s Aboriginal Relations Council, and the 595 Prevention Team Peer Secretariat.
Michael has become a powerful voice for his community. He moves and captivates his audience with his straight up style combined with energy and passion igniting the hopes of his listeners. A powerful presence that is both sincere and honest will have you hanging on his every word. The 7 teachings are at the core of everything he does and speaks to.
Michael's passion and enthusiasm are contagious. He is known for bringing his audience to their feet and will leave you moved, inspired and ready for action.
Bidders who wish to meet with Michael in person need to be able to get themselves to Winnipeg's North End.
Chill with the North End MC
"Programs don’t change people. Relationships change people." That's Michael's mantra, and he wants to build a relationship with you too. Hang out with Michael and go for a walk around his beloved North End, where he can show you his favourite hangouts. Feel free to ask Michael about his work with youth, what it was like growing up in the North End, and what he's most excited about for the youths of today. Those who can't make it in person can chat with Michael via Skype for roughly 30min about the same topics.
