It was great to travel to Hall Beach, the community was lovely and the children and youth were great to chat with. My highlight was playing our communication game with the students and listening to there many ways on how to communicate. It was great feeling so welcomed in the community which allowed me to talk to many people with ease.

David and Jeff spent a week in Kinngait (Cape Dorset) running the Raise Your Voice: Self-Advocacy Workshop in the schools. They battled near blizzard conditions all week walking through town. One of the highlights was providing food supplies to make pizzas with young people at the youth centre. David and Jeff were also excited to be able to leave their handprints on the wall where others had. The youth drop in-pop and talk is a great mental health event held every second Thursday to give youth a space to speak about their issues in a safe and supported place.

It was an exciting time for Diana and Kim while in Whale Cove as there were a few polar bears in the area. They would like to thanks the community members who drove them from place to place making sure they were safe. Also, a big thank you to the young people who came to the youth centre and took part in a yo-yo contest.

While in Grise Fiord, David met many people who were tremendously welcoming and were always glad to hear he was having a good time there. He really enjoyed the opportunity he had to go into the fiord and to see the glacier.

Warm spring weather in Naujaat meant that many community members were out and about wearing light jackets or even just t-shirts in mid-May! Sharon had fun presenting the Raise Your Voice: Self-Advocacy Workshop to many students in the beautiful new high school and playing the Rights Dice Game with the children in grades 3 to 6. Sharon thanks the Grade 8 students for teaching her how to quickly fold an RCYO Frisbee so it fits in the carrying pouch!
