Biwaase'aa Program

Kids smiling

TBCDSB has partnered with Biwaase'aa to run cultural learning programs in our schools. Biwaase'aa is a culturally designed program that provides Aboriginal youth aged 7 to 13 years and their families with a fun opportunity to participate in programs which contribute to their cultural, mental, physical, and emotional well-being. The program offers in-school literacy support, role modelling, and cultural teachings. Cultural teachings are also the foundation of the after-school component of Biwaase'aa.

Youth Outreach Workers give traditional Indigenous teaching in both classrooms and after school. The main purpose of the program is to teach about culture and pride, living a healthy lifestyle and living a good life following along the seven grandfather teachings. Youth Outreach Workers provide snack and lunch programs along with after school programming. This program is open to all students. Please contact your child's school to see if Biwaase'aa is there.
