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.
The Aboriginal Youth Network is a website designed by and for Aboriginal youth in the efforts to create and maintain a unique online youth community nationwide. Here at the AYN, we are interested in serving our Aboriginal youth community across Canada.
As more and more of our youth get online, the AYN is working to ensure there is a place in cyberspace where we can connect, make friends, access information, exchange ideas, ideals, values, beliefs and above all, our cultures and traditions.
We strive to provide a virtual community where you come and hang out, meet new friends, get the goods you need on health, education, employment opportunities, as well as the latest news and events across Indian Country!
The Aboriginal Multi-Media Society has an extensive listing of scholarships and bursaries. The listing is not limited to aboriginal only awards. In addition to general listings and listings by school, the site also has scholarship search tips.
