Katimavik, Tlicho Government Community Services Department and ONE Program had previously partnered to create TłĮchǫ Youth in Transition. This program provided the opportunity for 10 TłĮchǫ Youth (ages 18-30) to:
- Participate in the Katimavik development experience: living in an autonomous, but structured group setting in Regina, Saskatchewan and working four days a week as a volunteer in a community not-for-profit partnering organization;
- Complete a postsecondary course in a broad range of educational backgrounds at First Nations University of Canada;
- Increase their culture and language knowledge to strengthen self-esteem and provide them with strong working skills;
- Open avenues that lead directly to more success in education or training, or direct access to employment.
