What I Learned in Nunavut

I just had the tremendous privilege and opportunity to send a few days in Iqaluit, Nunavut during the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

Youth Mentors - True Rebels

Our youth mentors at The Dam are an incredible group of people.

It is a group of true rebels who are motivated by love!
