Since 2009, 18 youth in Moose Factory have committed suicide. More still have made suicide attempts. For a community of only 3,000, this has been devastating. Project George was developed in response to the youth suicide crisis. Our mission is to bring at-risk youth into the bush to help them to connect with the land and Cree traditions for the purpose of recovery and personal growth. Our vision is to create a community where youth are hopeful about their future, and strong and resilient in dealing with life’s challenges. Since Project George began, the number of youth suicides in the community has steadily dropped.
