Empowering Indigenous Youth

Empowering Indigenous Youth Indigenous Programming Impact Report October, 2018

Thank You for your support of Indigenous programs

We aredeeply grateful for your commitment toWE. Through your generous support, we are empowering Indigenous youth to connect with their heritage, educating both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth on Indigenous issues, bridging cultures and encouraging positive action towards reconciliation. We are pleased to share with you how Indigenous issues are being brought to light in our domestic programming across WE - from Sacred Circle encouraging leadership among Indigneous youth to WE Schools programming focusing on reconciliation with the WE Stand Together campaign, to the opportunity for Indigenous youth to connect at Take Action Camp and the platform to highlight the Indigenous voice at WE Day. We also feature stories of youth tackling the Indigenous issues they are most passionate about through the WE Are Silent campaign and other WE Schools resources. Please enjoy these highlights from across our Indigenous programming this year as a testament to your support. Together, we are providing the opportunity for Indigenous youth to share their own stories and experiences, celebrate their culture and be inspired to take action and create lasting change in their own communities and around the world. Thank you for making it possible to promote Indigenous culture and inspire the next generation of change-makers. “The Sacred Circle is an incredible opportunity for Indigenous youth. Our youth flourished throughout their time with the facilitators. The positive impact this opportunity has had on our students and the leadership skills that were developed is life-changing. Thank you for such an incredible opportunity.” – Elder, Tsawout Community, on the impact of WE’s Indigenous programming on youth in their community
