EUTC continues to operate the Eagle’s Nest Project as a resource for Indigenous youth who are out-of-school and unemployed.  The Eagle’s Nest project activities are delivered at the St. John’s Leisure Centre at 601 Aikins Avenue in Winnipeg’s North End.  The City of Winnipeg has been a tremendous supporter contributing to the success of the Eagle’s Nest.  This project offers a safe environment, Monday to Friday programming, supportive staff, daily nutrition, cultural education and an abundance of developmental opportunities.  The objective of the Eagle’s Nest is to assist 75 Indigenous Youth annually toward personal and professional goals that will ultimately see them gain the confidence to return to school or obtain employment.
