The 12th PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards
These Awards are NOW OPEN
to Aboriginal youth in grades 11 & 12 (maximum age 19 at October 1, 2017). Recipients attend AFOA Canada's International 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 12th PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards.
In the Fall of 2017 we want to bring 3 outstanding Aboriginal Youth (and a chaperone) to Vancouver, British Columbia for 5 nights to attend the AFOA Canada's International Conference and awards ceremony October 2-5, 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 Vancouver, British Columbia and what it has to offer?
If you answered yes to these questions, apply now for this amazing opportunity!
