Various workshops throughout the weekend will include, such as: Circle & Leadership; Crafts (Jewelry, sewing & or other); Essential Oils and Salve Making; Traditional Games; Genealogy; Spray Paint Art; and Child Rights and the Power of your voice...and much much more!
This weekend escape is part of the ‘4 the Generation Project’. A project led by the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD), funded by the Vancouver Foundation. The project was created to address a gap which exists very strongly for Indigenous youth-in-care or out of care who also experience a disconnect from their traditional community and aims to help re-establish that link to their heritage and culture.
Young people may reserve their spot at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (604) 838-6513
We hope to see you there!
