07. Between Two Worlds

Country Available: Canada, USA

In this day and age, finding your calling means leaving your home community for school or a career. For many youth this means trading in at the very least a connection to your community, and at the most; the total loss of your language and culture. It’s a huge trade-off, and one that more youth are making. Some are successful, and others fall through the cracks. For those that choose to live their life with one foot in two different worlds, the rewards and challenges are great. This episode of Venturing Forth will follow youth who are trying to balance life in two worlds. We will talk with youth who have achieved amazing success, and others who have fallen through the cracks. We will follow them to where they can connect with their culture in an urban setting, and we will hear about their home community to understand where they come from.
