In light of school closures resulting from COVID-19, Connected North has launched Connected [email protected] to continue to serve students from our partner communities wherever possible. Connected North providers have now offered hundreds of sessions for students across our network to connect to museums, zoos, artists, storytellers and other amazing organizations to offer unique learning experiences while students are at home.View & Join Sessions View Recordings
The Future Pathways program builds relationships between Indigenous role models and high school students in the Connected North network to deliver advice, expertise and guidance. The program also offers two public resources, our Fireside Chats video series with Indigenous role models, and the Future Pathways Navigator, a web site to support student transitions from remote communities to post-secondary institutions. We invite you to explore these resources below, and thank RBC Foundation for their support in bringing these initiatives to life!Read the Blogs Watch Fireside Chat Videos Explore the Navigator (beta)
