The PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards - NOW CLOSED
These Awards are now open to Aboriginal youth in grades 11 & 12. Recipients attend AFOA Canada's National Conference and participate in a special Youth program designed to introduce youth to careers in Aboriginal finance and management.
There is a great demand within Aboriginal communities and off-reserve for Aboriginal financial management professionals and there are many opportunities for those who want to pursue this career path and many sources of assistance. However, very few of our young people are pursuing an education in financial management after high school.
That is why AFOA Canada and PotashCorp have come together to offer the PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards.
In 2017 we want to bring 3 outstanding Aboriginal Youth (and a chaperone) to Calgary, Alberta for 4 nights to attend the AFOA Canada National Conference and awards ceremony February 7-9, 2017.
DO YOU WANT TO:
- Jump-start your career?
- Meet Canada’s most prominent Aboriginal leaders who are making a positive change?
- Meet post-secondary representatives?
- Meet other inspiring Aboriginal youth?
- Experience Calgary, Alberta and what it has to offer?
If you answered yes to these questions, apply now for this amazing opportunity!
