This spring break, we had the privilege to be guests in the lives of 30 incredible young people who attended Windspeaker, a program designed to foster leadership development and self-awareness and help Aboriginal youth engage with their cultural heritage.

“This program is the best initiative I have ever been able to lead, facilitate and direct,” says our Jeff Willis, who co-lead the development of Windspeaker into its third full year of operation alongside Surrey Schools’ Aboriginal Education district principal, Gloria Raphael.

Watch this video for a glimpse at the impact of Windspeaker. (Credit to our Calder Cheverie for production of this powerful video.)

This summer, we will join most of these youth again for a two-week expedition in the Stein Valley! Standby for more info.
