For Indigenous Youth in remote communities
Three times a year, I Am Compelled travels to remote Indigenous communities across Canada, to work with youth in the community.
Often times, the youth feel forgotten or alone. Sharing these discoveries with students in Toronto, they came up with the idea of purchasing, writing and decorating post cards with encouraging words to send to Indigenous youth.
I Am Compelled adopted the idea because the results were impactful! Indigenous youth in the north came alive when they knew students in the 'south' cared enough about them to make them a postcard.
1. Purchase (or cut card stock - postcard size).
2. Have students google positive sayings (or come up with their own)!
3. Decorate the cards and send to IAC Headquarters.
