Everyone is aware of the suicide crisis happening in First Nation communities across Canada. As an organization dedicated to helping young people, we couldn't sit back and do nothing. We HAD to do something.
In partnership with over twenty First Nation leaders in Saskatchewan, I Am Compelled is thrilled to present, Project Hope - A Youth Empowerment Weekend to Combat Suicide.

I Am Compelled's Contribution:
We will be sending a team of 13. Included in the mix are actors, rap artists, story tellers, professional dancers and entertainers, all equipped to facilitate educational programming for youth attendees. Each team member carries a story of hope and resiliency and is excited to serve First Nation students.
First Nation Leaders and Elders will be encouraging the students with messages of hope, resolve and love.
Together, we believe all who attend will be refreshed, encouraged and equipped.

Project Hope, is a collective new initiative between I Am Compelled and First Nation leaders in Saskatchewan. Together, we are working hard to facilitate a weekend program that will positively impact your students.
In order to do this well, we are asking that there would be 1 leader for every 3 students sent to Project Hope.
NOTE: Our price point $129/person covers hotel stay for 2-nights and 5 meals. We have blocked off hotel rooms that MUST be packed with 4 people per room. We encourage groups coming to have an even number of students and leaders.
