Elders and seniors play an important role in Indigenous culture as the keepers of knowledge, wisdom, and traditions. The Intergenerational Girls Empowerment Program will connect participants with community Elders and seniors as mentors, and offer outings, guest speakers, and cultural activities. Both the participating girls and the Elders will benefit from the mentoring connections and activities, which will focus on Indigenous traditions, ways of learning, and healing.
