Aboriginal Youth Program
The WAVAW Aboriginal Youth Program works with Community Elders, support workers and service providers to connect Youth to resources and programs that support their growth and their connection to themselves, their communities and their First Nations identities. WAVAW’s Aboriginal Youth groups and workshops integrate traditional Indigenous teachings with a feminist anti-oppression analysis. By participating in WAVAW’s programming, Aboriginal Youth can gain deeper understandings of their Indigenous roots, create positive social change and build connections in their lives.
We have had many highlights in the Aboriginal Youth Program over the years, including the music video below, written and recorded by Indigenous Youth:
WAVAW’s Youth Program is held at Broadway Youth Resource Center.
By attending this group youth will participate in cover letter, resume and portfolio building workshops. They will get the opportunity for career exploration through guest speakers and will have the chance to learn graphic design, marketing and program management skills. Also youth who’ve attended in the previous years received Food Safe & First Aid and helped organize and lead our Round Dance!
All the workshops will incorporate cultural teachings and support from our youth worker.

WAVAW’s Sacred Footprints had the opportunity to participate in an amazing art project, The Belonging Action.
