Recipient Name: KA NI KANICHIHK INC.
Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Date: 2012-01-23
Value: $487,992.00
Type: Contribution
Purpose: The Recipient proposes to develop and implement a three-year culturally based mentorship program for 36-40 Aboriginal female youth who are involved in or associated with youth street gangs and in the criminal justice system in Winnipeg. Using a continuous intake format, Oshkabaywis will use the Circle of Courage model which teaches strategies for youth to develop pro-social competencies, attitudes and behaviours and increase positive alternatives. While the Circle of Courage model is lifestyle neutral, a female gender-specific lens will be applied throughout the implementation of the program and will be reflected in hiring both staff and Elders.
