By nurturing self-empowerment, and fostering healthy collaboration and communication the Urban Society for Aboriginal Youth (USAY) strives to enrich the lives of all urban Aboriginal youth to ensure healthy future generations. USAY will ensure we meet our vision and mission by developing programs in three main areas; education, traditional languages, and arts based programs.

New Tribe Magazine was a monthly publication that was distributed for free throughout the city of Calgary. The goal of New Tribe was to promote community and culture within Calgary, and to encourage youth to express themselves through various forms of media.
