Amarok Society has seen real success for bringing lasting change to an overlooked education crisis. They have done this by helping some of the poorest women in the world by becoming catalysts of sustainable change in the world.

But Canada faces its own education crisis, which is also overlooked, and which also must be addressed through a spirit of innovation. Through their work in First Nations education, Amarok Society founders, Dr. Tanyss and Gem Munro have witnessed the serious educational disadvantages afforded to our Indigenous youth right here at home, with significant repercussions. Education deficits have a ripple effect to other areas, as evidenced by the gap between Indigenous populations and the average Canadian populations in health, income, justice, and social issues. There is likewise a serious gap between the equality that Canadians say we stand for, and the reality of life for most Indigenous youth.

Amarok Society is opening a new chapter – Amarok Society Indigenous – which will ultimately establish a month-long leadership academy for indigenous youth, beginning with workshops of shorter durations where indigenous youth are. The methodology draws upon Indigenous traditions, history, and culture to create transformative change in students’ lives. Unlocking long-standing impasses through conversation-based workshops, Amarok Society Indigenous leaves youth leaders with an unprecedented capacity to alter their lives and the lives of those around them.

We will have a guided tour of the "new" Cambridge Memorial Hospital. 

Please be aware this is an active construction site with no access to elevators so there will be plenty of stair climbing.  For the ladies: wear long pants; skirts or bare legs are not allowed.   Work boots and hard hats are mandatory and will be supplied by the hospital.  This is a great tour as the hospital is near completion and you will have an opportunity to see the new operating rooms, maternity area, emergency department and much more before it is open to the public.

If 95% of what we learn comes from our eyes and ears, imagine what it must be like to be deafblind.

For the deafblind, a simple touch can lead to endless possibilities. Individuals who are deafblind have the capacity to build their life skills, gain independence and contribute to the greater community with the support of professionally trained Intervenors who use the sense of touch to help them communicate. Founded in 1989, DeafBlind Ontario Services  helps individuals who are deafblind increase their independence and improve their quality of life through specialized services.
