TRACKS Youth Program

Celebrating 10 Years of culturally-relevant programming!

What is TRACKS?

TRACKS (TRent Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge and Science) is an educational program based on Michi Saagiig Anishnaabeg territory. We are hosted by Trent University within the Indigenous Environmental Studies and Sciences Program (IESS), and operates in partnership with founding partner organization Kawartha World Issues Centre and the First Peoples House of Learning. TRACKS consists of two distinct and connected programs: Outreach & Education and Oshkwazin Indigenous Youth Leadership.
