The Journey - A YouLEAD Certificate Course

Thursday, June 23, 2016 - 10:00am to Sunday, June 26, 2016 - 4:00pm


The Journey

to becoming an inspired, transformed, and strong youth leader/practitioner.


Effective youth workers have four key capacities: what they can do (skills), what they know (knowledge), their connections (networks) and who they are as people (character).

Join IICRD facilitators, local elders and fellow practitioners on an inner and outer Journey using deep inner reflection and nature-based experiences out on the land, to:

  • Deepen your own journey of inspiration, wellness, and personal development
  • Cultivate your leadership, mentoring, and facilitation skills
  • Use culturally grounded approaches to support youth wellbeing
  • Learn practical and exciting methods that draw on the natural world to work with youth

Come join us for four days out on the land to reflect on your life experience and how this shapes you perspective and your work with children, youth, families, and communities.
