What is Awaken the Spirit?

~Awaken the Spirit is an empowerment workshop for Indigenous youth and young adults, which focuses on strengthening personal identity, understanding cultural proficiency, mastering goal-setting, and fostering and maintaining positive self-image to help young people break free from the cycle and stigma of dependency and venture off into the workforce or further their education.

~Since 2014 we have helped thousands youth and have trained over 150 community services workers! 


~Awaken the Spirit, Train-the-Trainer is an intensive 3-day Facilitator Certification Workshop where techniques and strategies of the Awaken the Spirit 4 Part Model will be demonstrated, practiced and shared in a positive setting.


~Community Service Providers, Income Assistance Workers, Employment & Training, Health & Wellness Workers, Child Protection Workers, Educators and anyone who works with, or provides programming for Indigenous young people or those who would like to learn more about this innovative workshop.



~Comprehensive facilitator manual, complete workbook on USB, facilitator designation certificate, and access to on-going support and future training opportunities.


~Participants will also enjoy complimentary lunch, snacks and refreshments, gifts, and discounted accommodation rates.



~Awaken the Spirit, Train-the-Trainer is a beneficial and cost-effective method for communities & organizations to offer quality workshops as often as needed, throughout the year and years to come by having their own trained facilitators on-site.
