IndigenEYEZ is about transforming communities; to inspire an intergenerational legacy of well-being among First Nations people in BC and beyond.

IndigenEYEZ facilitators blend land-based learning with the arts and best practices in community-building. Their approach – the Creative Empowerment Model – is being used around the world. It has been refined over the past two decades by Partners For Youth Empowerment (www.PartnersForYouth.org), an organization that generously shares its knowledge with many partners. IndigenEYEZ has adapted this approach especially for First Nations.

The vision of IndigenEYEZ is shared and supported by an incredibly talented network of dedicated facilitators.
