The Traditional Parenting Program works towards improving the health and quality of life of Aboriginal peoples by teaching parenting skills through the traditional knowledge of Elders. The program also provides people with outreach programming in Yukon communities.
The main target group is urban Aboriginal families with children between the ages of 1 and 6.
- To encourage interest in and practice of traditional parenting values
- To preserve Aboriginal culture
- To promote health values
- To prevent the occurrence of FASD in infants
Elders are an essential component to our programming. As memory keepers of our traditions, stories, songs, dances and ceremonies. It is the Elders who provide us with the knowledge to carry on with our traditions of the past. As a result of this way of thinking, each workshop that we run is taught by an Elder from the community.
