Building an Effective and Exciting Youth Program from Scratch is no Small Task!

As much as we wanted to run on week one and have others to join us, we decided it was also important to take the time to create a solid foundation and find our collective voice. This included MANY conversations from things as simple as how to organize docs on Google Drive, to more complex issues around how to build cross-cultural awareness with youth in 2019.

Members of our team have been stretching themselves by participating and sharing at conferences across Atlantic Canada including the KAIROS Atlantic Gathering, JEDI’s Plenary on Indigenous Economic Development, and How We Thrive. One of our Program Coordinators even completed her Blanket Exercise Training!

After many hours of dreaming, listening, pausing, shifting, engaging, and replanning, we’ve made it through. United and excited, we are finally ready to launch this thing!
