Our program's mission is to empower and install positive life-long changes through culture, values, and strength through the incorporation of indigenous learning modalities to our tried and true curriculum.
An important component of the program is to enhance and strengthen personal development , First Nations identify, self-esteem and daily living skills.
The program is designed to help participants overcome their barriers to furthering their education and skills.

Participants then build from this foundation toward employability, education and training.
