An Exploration of Long-Term Outcomes Following Graduation from the Ndinawe Child and Youth Care Certificate Program

The Ndinawe Child and Youth Care Certificate Program (NCYCCP) is a post-secondary education program for formerly sexually exploited individuals in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The full-time, one-year college program is offered in partnership with Red River College Polytechnic (RRC Polytech) and Ndinawemaaganag Endaawaad Inc. since 2007. It offers accredited training using foundational knowledge and practical experiences for students to support children, youth, families and communities as youth support workers. This training comes from a variety of trauma-informed, relational, and anti-oppressive frameworks. For the majority of students, this program is the first step in ending a cycle of poverty and reliance on social assistance. Students have the opportunity to work towards healing themselves and rebuilding their lives while embarking on a career path that can have a direct positive impact on their own families and on children and youth in their larger community.
