The Makimautiksat Youth Wellness and Empowerment Camp is a camp program, for youth ages 8-13, developed by Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre. The program is designed to be a 10-day land and community-based camp, or 8-16 week after school program, focusing on fostering wellness, positive Inuit identity, community building and skill building. The idea is that it builds protective factors for youth who attend the camp. This training is hands-on and interactive. Each trainee will leave the training with the skills, planning and framework to run Makimautiksat in their community.
Please join in to take part in a Nunavut specific cultural competency workshop, geared towards covering topics such as: Indigenous Canada, cultural competence, residential schools, the history of colonization and reconciliation. These workshops are being offered in response to the Calls-to-Action specifically #57 to provide education to public servants on the history of Indigenous peoples including the history and legacy of residential schools as recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Council (TRC).
Time: 8:30AM - 5:00PM
