Featured Nurturing Capacity project: Actua’s National Aboriginal Outreach Program

May 5, 2015

The goal of Actua’s National Aboriginal Outreach Program is to engage and involve more Indigenous youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Four communities were selected as case studies to review the experience of Actua’s Outreach Team in implementing the National Aboriginal Outreach Program. The case study experiences examine the vital role of Indigenous Elders and community volunteers, and the strategies for making the link between Traditional Knowledge and science.

The evaluation looks at the impact on campers and instructors and reveals a number of important lessons and recommendations that will shape the future of the program and the training provided to Actua’s network of 33 members at universities and colleges across Canada.
