First Peoples on Schoolnet is a comprehensive online resource offering extensive links to Aboriginal classroom and educational resources as well as original Aboriginal content from individuals and organizations across Canada.
Are you Aboriginal and between the ages of 15 and 30? If you are, then you are a member of a fast growing group that is very important to Canada's future!
Aboriginal youth will play a very important part in filling many, many jobs left vacant when older people retire. And to do this, you need skills!
Urban and off-reserve Aboriginal youth are targeted by such programs under Youth Service Canada and Youth Internship Canada, up to an amount of $11.1 million Youth Employment Strategy.
Skills Link funds community organizations that assist youth facing barriers to employment. Community advisors work closely with youth to help them decide the kind of job they want and the skills they need to get it. Together, they develop an action plan, tailored to assist the young person in meeting his or her employment needs and career goals.
