Programs and activities at Red Lake Nation Boys & Girls Club

Core Programs

Clubs provide diverse activities that meet the interests of all youth. Core programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to develop self-esteem and to reach their full potential. Based on physical, emotional, cultural and social knees and interests of girls and boys, and recognizing developmental principles, clubs offer program activities in five areas.

Anishinabe Culture will be integrated as a functional part of all five CORE programs. Culture includes our language, values, ethics, the arts, law, history, philosophy, psychology, health, medicine and social structure.
