Achieving the Dream Through Education
Founded in 2018, Achieving the Dream Through Education is a registered charitable organization supporting youth and children from the Matawa First Nations. The organization works to preserve cultural traditions through land-based and culturally connected programming. Providing mental health support and resources that help address challenges and barriers Indigenous youth face while promoting overall well-being. Also, the organization provides opportunities to support Indigenous youth embarking on their educational journey through scholarships, bursaries, and awards.
Achieving the Dream Through Education believes access to quality education is a fundamental right for all Canadians. We believe supporting Indigenous youth in their education will help empower them to lead successful lives. Education provides opportunities for personal growth, career development, and better economic prospects. Strong and empowered Indigenous youth contribute to their communities’ overall strength and resilience.
Indigenous youth are the future leaders of their communities and Canada. By investing in their education, leadership skills, and well-being, we contribute to developing capable leaders who can advocate for their communities and work toward positive change.
