An interactive workshop regarding our experiential learning practices with Indigenous youth which includes emphasis on relationships with youth participants, their communities and culture. We integrate harm reduction, trauma-informed and youth-led approaches. We will incorporate storytelling, video narratives and testimonials to demonstrate our highly effective approach on career development and employment with Indigenous youth.

Learning Outcomes:
  • The benefits of long-term relationships when working with Indigenous youth
  • The impacts of a holistic approach that is culturally rich
  • The affects of a supportive environment to promote safe exploration
