Bringing together Indigenous and Western
Approaches to Promote Youth Resilience and Prosperity in First Nations Communitiesyf-logo

The goal of this research partnership is to foster Indigenous youth resilience and to empower youth to prosper as leaders in their communities. Following the lead of First Nations communities in Northwestern Ontario, we will build on each community’s strengths, act on their priorities, and facilitate the mobilization of resources to advance and sustain a positive community- and family-centric- foundation for youth.

The program of research is supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Partnership Grant and the Mitacs Indigenous Communities Engagement initiative.
