Tell us about your partnerships
Haida Gwaii is a tight-knit community where it is said that "everything depends on everything else." This saying applies to our programming as well, and we partner with the school district, the high school, the Skidegate Band Council and many other community organizations to help facilitate our programs.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your solution? If so, where and why?
Yes, we are targeting Haida youth because of well known facts that
Aboriginal youth are a more at-risk population.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
We bring the youth outside of the classroom to the local museum and Haida Heritage Centre for mentoring projects with Haida Fine Arts students. We also take full advantage of the outdoors in Haida Gwaii and get youth out on the beaches, up the rivers and in the woods for our activities.
