Aboriginal People’s Alliance of Northern Ontario                                
Kapuskasing, ON

The Tipihew program for Kapuskasing and surrounding communities will engage girls and 2SLGBTQII+ youth ages 9 to 13 in building confidence and access to community resources. The program will help participants to overcome barriers related to living in a northern region, and support them in becoming more engaged at school, in sports, and in their community. Girls also have a mentor (older youth or young adult) throughout the program, who can share their own experiences, coping strategies, and leadership skills.
