Connect with the unlimited potential of First Nations Youth in BC.
The skills of the future are top of mind for those engaged in workforce development. What are they? Who will step in to fill those careers? And how can we be inclusive and relevant to youth seeking access to those opportunities, especially considering new challenges such as COVID-19?
Linkages between industry and Indigenous populations remain under-developed despite new economic opportunities. COVID-19 has exacerbated these tenuous relationships as communities struggle to keep their services running and their populations safe.
While Indigenous youth could provide a significant source of local labour to industry in BC, they are primarily disengaged, not well networked and often left out of conversations for the future of skills and training.
We see their potential and the Two Eyed Seeing Network seeks to engage First Nations youth now to ensure their participation in the future of work.
TWO EYED SEEING
balances First Nations & Western perspectives
The Network takes a Two-Eyed Seeing approach – blending new technologies, standards, and practices – to honour the whole person and their interconnectedness to the land and others.
