The Ogimaa Binesiiyog – Youth Ranger Program is a summer employment program, starting in 2013, this unique program evolved through a partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF), Shooniyaa Wa-Biitong (SWB), and the United Native Friendship Center (UNFC). The teams are made up of a balance of Anishinaabe and non-indigenous youth from surrounding communities. The program provides these youth with valuable hands-on land-based work experience, personal and professional skills development, and the opportunity to expand cultural, traditional and technical knowledge of natural resources management and the importance of taking care of the land for generations to come.
