Towards Understanding and Supporting Marginalized Children and Youth in Ontario: The Case of Growing Up Indigenous

The Supports for Success project provides important information for Indigenous youth and their families as they transition through the school system and either to post-secondary education or into the workforce. Through ongoing discussions, this report provides a strengths-based approach to Indigenous voices in transitions that have traditionally been difficult for Indigenous youth and families. A strengths-based model that uses a life course approach is in keeping with Indigenous ways of knowing and being in that it is wholistic and interconnected as well as working from individual, family, community and provincial viewpoints to look at the diverse Indigenous groups in each of the four cities and providing their voice to future directions.
