Prior to election to MNBC in 2020, Davoren was the Regional Youth Representative for the Thompson/Okanagan (Region 3) for seven years. At only 23 years old, he is the youngest minister, growing up within the Métis Nation. His passions include advocating for Aboriginal languages and mental health, particularly among men. Davoren’s goal for his term as MNBC Youth Chair and Minister is to ensure opportunities to elevate the voices of Métis Youth marginalized because of race, sexual orientation, or gender.

Davoren welcomes all opportunities to connect with youth and all Métis to collaborating to further the success of MNBC in the future.
