-- Mini Toolkit!--
"We Matter" is an Indigenous youth-led and nationally registered non-profit organization committed to Indigenous youth support, hope and life promotion. The founding project is the "We Matter Campaign" – a national multi-media campaign in which Indigenous role models and allies from across Canada submit a short video, written and artistic messages sharing their own experiences of overcoming hardships, and communicating with Indigenous youth that no matter how hopeless life can feel, there is always a way forward.
The organization now supports the Ontario Support Network (OSN), Hope Council, and created the "We Matter Toolkits" for youth, teachers and support workers.
