Project Location: Muskrat Dam First Nation, Ontario

The goal of my initiative is to support the development of a Youth Leadership and After-School Program at Samson Beardy Memorial so youth mentors can have space to develop leadership skills, self-efficacy, and opportunities for community engagement. I hope to design a program with cultural continuity that builds upon what students are learning in the classroom and creates a space for other areas of skill development through active community involvement. The initiative will help youth feel more connected to their advancement in school and in their own abilities, while making space for community members to be actively engaged and more aware of the school’s programs.
