Supporting Youth From Northern Communities
In collaboration with our growing circle of partners, NorthWind is committed to developing a thriving ecosystem of programs and supports for Indigenous youth and young adults both in Thunder Bay and in their home communities.
One part of the ecosystem is called Enhance, which is designed to welcome and support youth who come to Thunder Bay for high school. It is an 8-week program designed to include land-based weekend retreats, opportunities for volunteer experience and mentorship, and LifeBuild workshops. For youth from northern communities who are attending high school in Thunder Bay, Enhance offers an environment of safety, support, connection, and growth.
Compass was designed to support northern communities and their youth to recover in the aftermath of a crisis. A Compass team offers counselling, youth programming, and other supports. Compass teams consist psychotherapists and children and youth workers and LifeBuild Coaches in response to the requests of the community.
Other programs and supports are in development as we expand our network of partnerships. If you would like to dialogue about potential collaborating with us please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are welcoming new communities to engage with us in Enhance and/or Compass team. If you are interested in NorthWind’s youth programming for youth from your community, or would like further information, please contact us at email@example.com
