Elders Programs & Initiatives

Elders share traditions, knowledge, cultures and values. We are proud to support programs and initiatives that celebrate our Elders and provide opportunities for them to share their knowledge and connect with others.

Connecting Elders and Youth 
The Elders Don’t Bite workshop provides a supportive space for youth to connect with Elders and exchange knowledge and ideas. The annual Gathering Our Voices: Indigenous Youth Leadership Training event is a wonderful reflection of the positive impact this engagement has on youth.
