Leadership Training and the National Celebration
Virtual leadership training events will be held for the benefit of all youth participating in both streams of the program.
Youth from the 12 projects selected from the K-G5 stream will be invited to attend a learning session geared towards their age group around allyship and cultural awareness.
Youth from the 15 projects selected from G6-12 and CÉGEP stream will be invited to attend learning sessions about allyship, cultural awareness, having difficult conversations, and project management.
If the number of youth involved in a project are quite numerous, the NCTR reserves the right to determine the number of participants it is able to accommodate in leadership training and the national celebration.
NCTR’s spirit name – bezhig miigwan, meaning “one feather”.
Bezhig miigwan calls upon us to see each Survivor coming to the NCTR as a single eagle feather and to show those Survivors the same respect and attention an eagle feather deserves. It also teaches we are all in this together — we are all one, connected, and it is vital to work together to achieve reconciliation.
