The YHY workshop is a place of creativity, warmth, laughter and kinship and we invite you to come visit our artisan world (it is a very special place of woundrous creativity and collaboration).

The Youth Helping Youth Mentorship Program serves as an artistic hub that is working hard to foster a new generation of artists as we provide workshops, mentorship, guidance and increased public participation at various community events. More importantly, we seek to revitalize traditional Gitxsan art - and create new expressions of collaborative art. We want to do it all!
