The youth Blanket Exercise is a 90 minute program that will include an opening and closing ceremony led by an Elder, a 45 minutes interactive teaching component, and ends with a talking circle to help participants debrief from the experience.

The Blanket Exercise is offered ONLY as a Satellite option.
