Our session will present an overview of the three-year pilot "NYA Next," which built a 10-month experiential education program offered to 50 youth from Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Next provides an intensive experience where youth can explore a broad range of career interests while building skills and experience. We'll focus on best practices and lessons learned.

Learning Outcomes:
  • How to support successful transitions to career for Northern youth;
  • What can we do to increase success in post-secondary education;
  • How to use experiential learning to invest in potential
