The Northern Youth Abroad Canadian Placement program
The Northern Youth Abroad Canadian Placement program is a work placement program that seeks to provide northern youth with work experiences in southern Canada. Research shows that the Inuit youth population is growing; however, they are less likely to graduate from high school and are underrepresented in post-secondary institutions and the labour force. Therefore, implementing work or study aboard programs provides youth with opportunities to travel, gain critical skills, learn the necessity of education, and to value their culture. This review provides an in-depth analysis of qualitative and quantitative data demonstrating a strong correlation between this program and the success in high school. Issues covered include possible long-term impacts and next steps to ensure further success for this program and for Inuit youth.
