Touch the Earth

July 13, 2021—Kelowna, BC: Starting soon! Join us for a powerful 5-day course to increase your ability to work with Indigenous youth. Touch the Earth: Learn to create powerful land-based experiences. Leave with tools to get the attention of youth, keep them engaged, and energize your community programs.


Register today! This Indigenous-led course is for staff, community members, and educators seeking to awaken Indigenous youth to a sense of pride, belonging, and possibility. The land is powerful! Activities that connect youth with the land provide a safer entry point to engage with their feelings and listen to themselves and others.

At the conclusion of Touch the Earth, participants will be able to:

• Increase the impact of workshops and camps in their own communities
• Use tools for increasing connection with youth and inspiring more participation
• Develop program plans that include activities for deepening connection with the land
• Demonstrate how to facilitate safe and vulnerable conversations with youth
