ABOUT GEN7?

What is GEN7?

In collaboration with Active Circle, GEN7 encourages Aboriginal youth to live, and encourage others to live, an active and healthy lifestyle through sport, physical activity, and other means. GEN7 also helps Aboriginal youth to become leaders in their community.

When and why was it developed?

In 2004, after ten years of running the Esteem Team program, it became clear that one group of youth was not being adequately reached: those of Aboriginal descent. Drawing from the expertise gained through the Esteem Team, and in partnership with the Aboriginal Sport Circle, GEN7 was developed in 2005 as a role model program specifically designed for Aboriginal youth and the unique challenges they face.
