TRACKS Youth Program

Celebrating 10 Years of culturally-relevant programming!

What is TRACKS?

TRACKS (TRent Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge and Science) is an educational program which provides hands-on experiences for youth interested in the intersections of Indigenous and western sciences. TRACKS is hosted by Trent University within the Indigenous Environmental Studies and Sciences Program (IESS), and operates in partnership with the Kawartha World Issues Centre and First People's House of Learning. TRACKS consists of two distinct but connected programs: Outreach & Education and Oshkwazin Indigenous Youth Leadership Program.  


TRACKS Outreach & Education runs a wide variety of educational programs throughout the calendar year for Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth.
