Come Walk With Us… Facebook Live Every Saturday Night at 7:00 PM EDT

Come Walk With Us… after 100 episodes and with a busy summer here at Three Things, we are taking a summer hiatus – though we’ll be back in September to remind our friends that #youmatter, #youareimportant and #youbelong! A huge thank you to our dear friends, new and old, who joined us on the show, and the more than 250,000 folks who have tuned in and spent a Saturday night coming to walk with us…

Remember you can catch previous episodes on our Facebook page at anytime!

Thank You To All Our Friends…

Our consultants are leaders in their areas of interest and are the reason Three Things has been able to find the kind of success we have in each project, activity and event.  We are so grateful for them and we honour them.  If you’ve crossed paths with these folks, you know, like we do, that they are the foundation of the good works being done collectively by Three Things.  We are grateful they have stayed connected during these challenging past few years and look forward to seeing them, in person, and working together to create change.

Thunder Bay Youth Engagement with Pathways to Education Canada and the Regional Multicultural Youth Centre

It is an exciting time in Thunder Bay, as with the support of Pathways to Education Canada and their commitment to youth led community engagement, this spring Pathways Thunder Bay launched their full program focused on providing support to both Indigenous high school students and those in key identified neighbourhoods.  Working with the Regional Multicultural Youth Centre (RMYC) young people planned and organized Voices of Youth 2019: The Past, Present and Future, hosted at Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School, and brought more than a hundred Indigenous students together over two days with representation from each high school along with local community organizations, which offered great insight into what supports students were looking for in their educational journey.  Read a snapshot of the gathering and the young people’s calls to support them in their path towards high school graduation in Pathways to Education Canada Snapshot of Youth Led Engagement in Thunder Bay.

Now with a full running program, Pathways Thunder Bay has it’s first community of grade nine students finishing their first year and the dedicated team of youth and adults, working together, continue to create spaces for youth voice to flourish. Learn more here.

As the program evolves and grows, stay tuned to the amazing and important work that is taking place in Thunder Bay!

3 Things Consulting

There are many choices available for organizations, communities and governments when engaging with outside vendors to support their activities, develop and deliver community-based programming, offer services including program evaluations, process facilitation and communications and provide strategic advice. Most provide quality work and it can be a challenge to determine the best fit for your needs. Based on the number of clients who have engaged with us repeatedly, we believe we can be the fit you are looking for. We have found when we share values with our clients, we are able to develop lasting relationships that provide meaningful and measurable results from our work. We root our work in traditional knowledge and processes, research and science and years of experience. We are Three Things Consulting. We are an Indigenous owned and incorporated company, originally a collaboration between three innovators with a combined experience of more than seventy years in facilitation, evaluation, program design, youth and adult gathering development and management, community and youth engagement, project and research development and implementation, training and capacity building, assessment, strategic planning, partnership/program development and knowledge sharing. Our roots and process are tied to a core lesson learned from our work: people matter, are important and belong. Our focus is on engagement, development, motivation and healing. We share #the3Things with young people, their families, communities and allies reminding them that they matter, are important and that they belong.

Today we honour the survivors of the institutions that once were called schools.

We honour the generations since that have carried the hurts of their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.

We honour those who never came home and all their family members.

We honour Phyllis Jack Webstad from the Stswecem'c Xgat'tem First Nation, whose courage and bravery helped challenge the consciousness of Canada: it's citizens, governments and systems.

We honour the youth of today. This song, shared now for the first time, was created by Indigenous graduates of the Pathways to Education Canada Class of 2022 in collaboration with and guidance from our dear friend Zoey Roy and many others on the Three Things team. Thank you to the students from Pathways Surrey, led by Pacific Community Resources Society, Pathways Saskatoon, led by Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC) and Pathways Winnipeg, led by Pathways to Education Winnipeg - CEDA. A full music video will be released this fall. We are grateful to Pathways Canada for their support.

Today their words remind us that Every Child Matters. Today, and every day. Those that came before us and those will come after.

Today we honour their voices.

Today, on International Youth Day, the whole Three Things team, from sea to sea to sea, sends out an important reminder to our young friends...

You Matter.
You Are Important.
You Belong.

Between in person gatherings, students visiting and sharing with our team members, our upcoming virtual events and the 100's of students taking part in digital interactive components, our project, Listen Up on behalf of Pathways to Education Canada has been an amazing experience this summer and today we honour each and every young person who has contributed to an even stronger Pathways program for themselves and those who will come after them.

A shout out to the Pathways Program locations and adult allies who have been championing youth voices and our team members who have been working hard to ensure unique, caring and safe spaces are created for youth to share their Pathways stories.

Yet most importantly are the Pathways students who have been creating, sharing, speaking up and speaking out - you have all been amazing.

Today we gave away $100 to another student who took part at one of our in-person gatherings, (incentives do matter!) and here's a snippet of some of our team in that process.

The summer of 2022 will be a powerful memory of the strength, courage and leadership that exists in young people in this country. Today, we say thank you to all the young people who cross our path from each and every project we're privileged to contribute to.

Learn more and share this link, and if you can, contribute to ensure the shoes, and everything they represent, safely arrive home.
