Educational Resources

Engaging young people in reconciliation and social justice nurtures compassion and moral courage, and bolsters self-confidence. At the Caring Society, we support educators in providing opportunities for young people to take part in activities that foster reconciliation and culturally based equity for Indigenous children and youth. 

The Caring Society aims to identify quality resources to individuals everywhere. Below are a list of resources for youth, students, educators and families to incorporate into their studies and everyday life. Ranging from Early Childhood to Post-Secondary our selection of books, films, educational programs and toolkits will surely be a good start for those seeking to get a better understanding of Indigenous children and their families.
