Life in the city can be difficult for Indigenous youth and young adults to navigate. Young people need a supportive environment to learn, to know how to assess safety and engage in healthy community. Low self-esteem or previous trauma can make this more difficult. Enhance is an eight week program that seeks to support young adults as they work through these challenges.

Enhance starts with a kick-off weekend retreat at Eagle’s Cove to build trust and community among participants, staff and LifeBuild coaches, enhancing the high value of community and land-based activities within the Indigenous culture.

Six customised weekly LifeBuild workshops set in oral tradition style, with hands-on application experience, teaching on topics such as self-esteem, conflict resolution, and assessing environment safety.

During the weeks, each youth can also participate in a volunteer work opportunity to acquire experience and accumulate hours towards secondary school requirements. This is designed to boost confidence and help them apply fundamental employment-success skills.

Each participant will have a mentor to help them to succeed in all aspects of the enhance program. The mentor offers life-affirming feedback as needed. Professional counsellors are available upon request by the student

The Enhance program concludes with a weekend retreat at Eagle’s Cove; it is geared to encourage and demonstrate personal growth and community connections.
