A few dozen Manitoba youth gathered at the first North-End youth forum.

The forum hosted break-out sessions and guest speakers all in the effort to hear how the youth view their community and how they want to see it change.

As APTN National News reporter Shaneen Robinson explains, these inner city youth are facing many of the same issues Aboriginal young people are facing in urban and rural communities across Canada.
