Soaring: Indigenous
Youth Empowerment Gathering

March 5 & 6, 2020 | The Westin | Ottawa, ON

At Soaring, high school students 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.

The 2020 Edition of Soaring: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering was attended by over 600 Indigenous students and their chaperones and included workshops and tradeshow booths that showcased the various post-secondary and career opportunities that are available for students. Soaring saw many talented and notable speakers and Indigenous performers, who conveyed inspirational and motivational messages.
