Wiidooktaadwin Indigenous Mentorship Initiatives (WIMI)

Wiidooktaadwin is an Anishnaabe word that means “helping one another.“ WIMI connects upper-year Indigenous Nipissing University students with Indigenous youth in our community to build relationships and learn leadership skills within a culturally supportive program. Sessions with mentors and Indigenous youth in local secondary schools include projects and leadership activities organized around the Seven Grandfather Teachings. WIMI culminates in a celebration for students, community and families, Aasgaabwitaadwin Indigenous Youth Leadership Conference, held in the fall and winter. Aasgaabwitaadwin is Anishnaabe word meaning “we are standing in support of one another.”

Schools participating include: Nbisiing Secondary School, Chippewa Secondary School, Northern Secondary School, Scollard Hall Secondary School, West Ferris Secondary School, and Widdifield Secondary School.
