 OUR IMPACT 

Over the course of the 11 years that TSA has been supporting Nunavut Youth, we have been able to expand from visiting one community, to visiting 5-6 communities during each visit. We have gone from visiting Nunavut once per year and working with 20-25 students annually, to visiting three times and teaching fiddle to more than 300 students per year. Our program aims not only to provide Inuit youth with music instruction (especially in communities where music programs don't exist), as a positive, creative outlet, but our program continues to deliver valuable skills that translate into increased self-worth, joy, positive engagement with others, increased confidence and positive mental health.

 THE IMPACT OF MUSIC IN POND INLET 

Thank you to RYOT and to David Darg & Bryn Mooser for traveling to Pond Inlet in 2014 to capture this video.  We look forward to many more years to come and to being able to reach more youth in other communities across Nunavut.
