What We Do
Through experiential education that explores self-expression, embracing challenges, and shaping the journey to success, Outside Looking In supports and empowers Indigenous youth from high school to their career path of choice.
Our life cycle of programs has been purpose-built to support Indigenous youth every step of the way from secondary school to their career path of choice. We have worked hard to develop and continuously improve these programs over the last 15 years to ensure they best meet the needs of the youth we serve and their communities.
