Deepening Knowledge.

Our Partnerships

This year the Deepening Knowledge Project collaborated with youth of the Native Learning Centre of Toronto who acted as consultants on website artwork and image design.  The youth have contributed artwork and photographs that are of relevance and import to them as young urban Indigenous youth. 

 

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE GALLERY OF IMAGES PRODUCED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE NLC!

 

Our website will have a new look in May of 2014 thanks to the amazing work of the NLC youth and special thanks as well to the NLC staff for their support of the project and work with the youth to provide the project consultation. In preview, you can read the youth biographies, which they have provided in Anishinaabemowin (syllabics and roman orthography) and English.

Native Learning Centre is "a partnership with the Toronto District School Board. This program allows students to work at their own pace with one-on-one instruction, in a non-competitive environment.

The NLC is a classroom where Native youth can work towards a high school diploma through a flexible curriculum. The program is for youth aged 15 to 20 and encompasses grades 9 to 12, utilizing Ministry of Education approved curriculum." (from the website).
