Under the leadership of our Indigenous Advisory Council, we have developed Finding Hope: Kids Help Phone’s Action Plan for Supporting First Nations, Inuit and Métis Young People. Through this plan Kids Help Phone is working in partnership with Indigenous peoples and allies to reduce barriers to access and ensure that every Indigenous young person across Canada has equitable access to our service offerings.
Our Indigenous initiatives will continue to be guided by ongoing input from our Indigenous Advisory Council, partners, and volunteer champions however initial focused input from Indigenous youth is required to implement three actions in Finding Hope.
The purpose of the sessions is to seek input on Kids Help Phone’s brand to ensure it resonates with Indigenous youth, generate ideas for keywords for Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone, and inform development on an Indigenous stream of our Counsellor in the Classroom program.
The vendor will plan, facilitate, and report on nine engagement sessions with First Nations, Métis and Inuit students ranging from grades 3 to 12 in a classroom setting. The vendor will be responsible for liaising with identified educators, setting up logistics of the engagement sessions including developing questions in consultation with staff at Kids Help Phone and Republic, submitting a report of findings, and circling back to those involved in order to provide a summary of the data collected (in line with the First Nations Principles of Ownership, Control, Access, Possession (OCAP)).
