Bawaajigewin Aboriginal Community Circle recognizes the inherent value of meaningful relationships
based on mutual trust and respectful collaboration. Bawaajigewin is seeking an Indigenous Project
Coordinator to develop and coordinate a series of Indigenous youth sharing circles that will culminate
in an Immersive Indigenous Culture camp for urban Indigenous youth.
Funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Giitwitaabiwag Program is designed to create
authentic connections among Urban Indigenous youth within Durham Region and nurture their
knowledge and connection to their culture and Indigenous ways of knowing. The program was
designed with the intention of encouraging unique relationships and networks, thereby strengthening
community ties and furthering collective voices regionally. This Program is our next step in meeting
the community needs that were outlined in the Needs Assessments Bawaajigewin published in March
2017 as a result of the Gathering our Voice Community Engagement Project.
