Youth Empowerment Gathering
April 16 & 17, 2024 | Ottawa, ON
Soaring 2024 is back in Ottawa! Taking on a hybrid format, high school students from across the country will learn about career and post-secondary education options by participating in career workshops either in-person or virtually. They’ll also learn more about financial support and meet Canada’s top employers.
The two-day event will take place at the Shaw Centre with post-secondary campus visits and a hybrid platform which will allow students and educators to access event content in-person or from their classroom if they can’t travel to attend. Our virtual platform will house all panel discussions, performances, workshops, resources, and tradeshow content during the event.
If you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is what students have to say about Soaring!
“The best part of the Soaring event was the Spotlight Sessions and each of the panels, on both days. These panels were very informative, and I was able to take away a lot of important information in regards to achieving my goals as a person, connecting culturally, and getting some great advice through these panels.”
“My favourite part of Soaring was being able to listen to the stories and advice of those on the panels. Being able to learn the stories and struggles of others and how they got through them is incredible and really helped me reflect on myself.”
“The best part of the Soaring event is that they help indigenous people who don’t know what they want to do when they are done high school.”
