Sacred Circle educates and motivates First Nations, Métis and Inuit youth to make change and become leaders in their communities. The program is delivered in partnership with community Elders and mentors. Sacred Circle was designed in consultation with educators from the Department of Aboriginal Education at Nanaimo Ladysmith School District and is based upon Indigenous concepts such as the Seven Teachings and the Medicine Wheel.
Imagine Canada focuses on educating young people on the history and traditions of Canada’s Indigenous populations, and promotes diversity and inclusivity in the collective Canadian community. Throughout the program, participants have the opportunity to reflect on their place in Canada’s history and learn about their unique privilege and perceptions.
