Indspire announced the 10th Annual Soaring: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering. This year’s Soaring marks the 10th anniversary of a uniquely meaningful and powerful gathering for high school-aged Indigenous youth from across the country.
The gathering allows students to come together with their teachers and educators to think about their future and explore exciting options for post-secondary education and careers.
“Soaring 2022 will feature an outstanding selection of spotlight sessions and trade show booths, with memorable post-secondary and career workshops. Students will also learn about financial supports and have an opportunity to meet and greet with some of Canada’s top employers,” said a March 18 press release.
“This year we wanted to better illuminate the various paths in front of Indigenous learners. From a multitude of academic, career and life paths, we hope that after Soaring 2022, students will be even more excited about their futures,” said Rebecca Chartrand, vice-president of programs and student success at Indspire.
According to the release, Soaring 2022 will be delivered completely online and will highlight many notable Indigenous speakers and performers. It will be an immersive two-day virtual experience from May 4 to 5, featuring exclusive access to one-of-a-kind live recordings, all spotlight sessions, and the trade show for 30 days following the event.
