About the Training

The Indigenous 20 Something Project (I20SP) is a movement by and for young people in or around their 20’s. The movement is to end the lasting negative impacts of historical and intergenerational trauma. Healing is the answer to trauma and this gathering will be a time for young people to learn more about historical and intergenerational trauma and how that ties to current behaviors. Tools and opportunities for healing will be facilitated as well as discussing a model for living in balance. For the first time for many in this generation, they will get to gather amongst their peers to learn, share, let go and help to join a movement that will impact all of Native Country.

The gathering will include steps that participants can take to bring this healing and wellness movement to their communities and peers. The I20SP facilitators will provide resources and materials that will assist participants in their personal growth and development and to bring these opportunities home.

Who Should Attend

This gathering is intended for young adults in their late teens to early to mid- thirties. Any young person that wants to learn more about trauma and healing are welcome to attend. Those interested in helping to grow a movement are welcome to attend. Those struggling with substances, with legal issues, with life’s challenges, are welcome to attend. Those ready for a positive change, welcome to attend. 

The movement is not yet funded so we have to charge a small registration fee to help cover costs. Nobody will be turned away. Please ask for a scholarship if you are not able to pay the registration fee. We will also have several other I20SP gatherings throughout 2019 if you can’t attend this one and we can also come to your community.
