Trent, Katimavik partner on Indigenous youth programming

March 8, 2017

Trent University and national non-profit organization Katimavik have signed an agreement that will see the two parties collaborating on a number of initiatives in order to foster intercultural learning between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Trent has committed to supporting the relaunch of Katimavik’s Indigenous Youth in Transition program, providing Katimavik access to its educational expertise and service in order to develop better learning approaches and tools, become a formal teaching partner for IYIT programs, and collaborate with Katimavik on ways to accredit Katimavik volunteers’ development experience. In return, Katimavik will promote Trent as a preferred place of learning for Indigenous youth and aid the school in recruiting Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, as well as providing Trent’s not-for-profit organizations with Katimavik volunteers.
