Aboriginal Youth Network

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!

Career Edge

Career Edge is a national, not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to enhance youth employability. The program is aimed at graduates of university, college and high school who have finished their education but who lack career-related work experience.

By completing a six-, nine-, or twelve-month paid internship in one of the program's Host Organizations, the Interns gain the skills and experience they need to become more marketable in the workplace.
