NAIT and Cenovus Energy have launched an innovative program to help promote Aboriginal youth leadership skills in First Nations in central and northern Alberta. The NAIT Aboriginal Youth Leadership Program, sponsored by Cenovus Energy, was recently delivered to 18 students between the ages of 15 and 18 in Heart Lake First Nation. This is the first community the program has been delivered in following a pilot in 2011 in High Level to participants from the three Dene Tha’ First Nation communities. The program helps students improve their grades, reduce school drop-out rates and improve employment opportunities.
