The Program

Elementary & Secondary in Indigenous communities

This project aims to empower students to pursue their curiosity for land-based activities and sciences. The in-class and afterschool activities are a mix of hands-on scientific activities and traditional and cultural activities relating to the land. The collaboration with community members and elders is essential in this project, as they have a deep understanding of the land. With their support and through the organization of multiple outings, the youth can develop a further knowledge of the land and survival techniques relating to their environment.
