CUatro elementos Leadership Institute
This institute is geared for youth whose leadership potential and talent is typically ignored by the mainstream schooling system. Every summer we prepare youth to spend an intensive week at the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) learning, in an immersion and hands-‐on approach, about our cultural roots’ connectedness to mother earth. Youth are trained on today’s most pressing environmental issues, gain skills such as map reading, biological time keeping, astronomy, and more. Guest speakers join us to implement workshops, enabling the youth to reclaim their Indigenous technologies and become active in also reclaiming their educational journey.
