CCR Charity for 2017-2018 - First Nations Youth Projects

During the 2017-18 season, we are supporting Canadian First Nations youth living in very isolated communities with few services. The two programmes we are funding are the following:

1) on a Canada-wide level, the Summer Literacy Camps programme managed by Frontier College, which supports the reading ability of some 8,000 youngsters in 130 isolated communities from B.C. to Labrador and Nunavut


2) the local Weeneebayko Area Health Authority and/or the Delaney Youth Centre serving Moose Factory and the coast of James Bay up toward the Manitoba border. These remote communities in the far north need urgent support for their children and young people especially in the area of suicide prevention. They incorporate traditional healing and community-building activities in their approach.
