The Cedar Path
This project is a youth-focused, youth-led community initiative that regularly engages youth (aged 13-19) in healthy lifestyle activities in the Pas, Manitoba. The intervention offers opportunities for youth to engage in pro-social activities, provide positive mentorship, develop healthy attachments to their communities, and learn to establish and make progress toward self-identified and personal goals. Activities are developed through engagement and collaboration with youth participants and the community, and include individual and group sessions, such as workshops, and land-based learning. Youth have identified that they would like land-based teachings on: respect for and use of animals, the importance of community and family in traditional life, land-use (preparing land, gardening, harvesting), and the history of Indigenous people in Canada.
Lead organization: The Pas Family Resource Centre Inc.
