Aboriginal Youth Leadership and Mentorship Programs

Aboriginal Education in Burnaby Schools is excited to be partnering with Outward Bound Canada to co-deliver our Aboriginal Youth Leadership and Mentorship Programs for 2014-2015. Outward Bound has a long history of successfully delivering outdoor, adventure based learning experiences to various groups. Our Secondary Aboriginal Resource Teachers will be working closley with Outward Bound to ground the activities in our leadership program in Aboriginal perspective. This program is sure to enhance our student participants leadership skills and abilities, while offering an Independant Directed Studies component so that students can obtain credit toward graduation for their work within the leadership program. Year one will play host to 16 student participants from all high schools in Burnaby. We look forward to a successful first year and future growth of the program in years to come.
