The Building Our Bundle Program is an online mental and spiritual health program designed to support Indigenous youth to develop relationships and skills to live a good life. The program offers 6-week virtual sessions to connect Indigenous youth with one another and the broader world to explore various mental health skills and cultural teachings. All participants are also able to receive one-on-one mentoring support from the FOPT team who will work independently with young people on their self-determined goals.
Each season, we publish video content and worksheets to allow for anyone to practice Building Our Bundle activities at home! Take a look below for more information on our program.
