Spirit of Our Youth
Services and programs for Indigenous children, youth and families based on cultural respect and trauma-informed support.
Spirit of Our Youth supports Indigenous children, youth and adults in safe, nurturing environments. With positive role-modeling and a trauma-informed approach to care, we help them plan for their future and create healthy relationships with their communities and families.
We encourage building cultural connections as a path to personal healing. All our services include access to a Cultural Resource Coordinator or an Elder as well as the practice of sweats, smudging, pipe ceremonies, feasts, dances, traditional healing, language and customs.
We are based in Edmonton, Alberta but accept referrals from across Canada.
