New Voices Investing in the wellbeing and success of our youth
EMPOWERING NEW VOICES
We aim to empower our future generations with the knowledge and skills to uphold the legacy of the Cowichan Tribes. Through direct support, economic and training initiatives, meaningful employment opportunities, and by honouring our cultural heritage, KDC strives to nurture our communities by enhancing the wellbeing of our youth.
We aim to empower our youth with practical skills and valuable training programs to prepare them for entry into the workforce, creating meaningful educational opportunities to help support families within our Indigenous communities.
