Sacred Circle

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.
