Bkejwanong Youth Centre

Donation protected
Boozhoo (Hello),

The Bkejwanong Youth Council is from Walpole Island First Nation, located in Southwestern Ontario. We are youth-driven, youth-focused, and youth-led. We are a mentorship, leadership, and role model group for other Indigenous youth. We strive to be a voice for the Indigenous youth and to advocate for their needs.

We meet weekly to plan community events, cultural workshops and outreach to youth. We listen to the concerns regarding community youth and suggestions on how we can help the community. One primary concern identified in the community is the need for a larger youth facility that can be used for recreational activities, cultural workshops and meeting space for the Youth Council. It would also serve as a safe, welcoming, inclusive space for high-risk Indigenous youth to call their own.

Buildings and resources are scarce on the First Nation, and the community has numerous needs. Our current youth facility is barely large enough to accommodate programming for 20 youth. We are asking for your support to help us raise money to build a new and larger facility for our youth and youth council.
