Soaring: Indigenous
Youth Empowerment Gathering

May 5 & 6, 2021 | Online 

Soaring, Indspire’s annual Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering, is THE place for Indigenous high school students to learn about career and post-secondary education options by participating in career workshops. They’ll also learn more about financial support and meet Canada’s top employers.

Building on the resounding success of Soaring 2020, which was attended by over 600 Indigenous students and their chaperones, Indspire is planning another ground-breaking opportunity for Indigenous high school students and their teachers – this time, delivered completely online!

Hosted by the wonderful Stan Wesley, it will feature all of the innovative workshops and tradeshow booths that Soaring is known for, showcasing the many post-secondary and career opportunities available to students. And, just like the in-person version, Soaring 2021 will highlight many talented and notable Indigenous speakers and performers.

Check out the photos from Soaring 2020 on our Facebook page.
