The Niitsitapi Learning Centre is pleased to partner with diverse community groups in order to better support our students, families and staff.

Since 1988, Miskanawah (former Pathways Community Services) has led the effort to support vulnerable children and youth in a holistic way throughout Calgary and the surrounding area. We are a leader in the social services field working from a harm-reduction and strength-based perspective, with a focus on Indigenous traditions.
Children, youth and families thrive within a culturally responsive community.
Guided by Indigenous teachings, Pathways provides evidence-informed supportive services to people in the Calgary area as they strengthen their circles of self, family, community, and culture.
The City of Calgary & Koko’sinooniks (All Our Children) & Dover Niitsitapi Kids
We are pleased to welcome the City of Calgary as our community partner.
The City of Calgary will be providing a community based program at the Niitsitapi Learning Centre that focuses on building positive relationships and cultural awareness in our participants.
Each week, they will have a different theme to enhance the overall program experience of participants. Many activities will have an indigenous focus in connection to our four program pillars: Courage, bravery, compassion and determination.
Activities, crafts and games will occur on a daily basis in order to promote and build self-confidence and a sense of community.
The City of Calgary also offers an after school program for students on Fridays from 12:00-2:00 PM. Please contact Renee Walker (403) 300-3067 for enrollment information.
