Culture of the North: BIPOC Youth Taking Action is a 2-phase youth-led project supported by Future North. The project initially sought to gain insight into the cultural education experiences of students that self-identified as Black, Indigenous, [and] People of Colour (BIPOC) in high schools within the Sudbury-Manitoulin district. The findings from Phase 1 of COTN recommended and informed the development of Equity Action Teams within two high schools. These teams focused on increasing youth-led multicultural education opportunities to create a more inclusive environment.

On the Road/En Route was developed as a post-COVID initiative to connect communities and understand the different needs across the districts of Sudbury-Manitoulin. This project began at the end of summer in 2021 and became a three-day district-wide road trip. From Copper Cliff to Little Current and everywhere in between the journey began, read more to find out how it transformed into an even bigger endeavour.
