Pathfinder: Indigenous Youth Program

Pathfinder is a summer program for Indigenous students focused on Indigenous culture, identity, leadership skills, and pathways into post-secondary.

New as of 2019, students aged 18 - 21 will have the opportunity to spend one week at Mohawk College and one week in Vancouver, British Columbia earning a Mohawk College Credit through experiential and practical learning. After the week in Vancouver, students will spend 2 additional days at Mohawk College to complete the program.

To be considered for the program, students must complete the application form, waivers, and an essay which speaks to your educational goals, community involvement, what you hope to gain from the program, and what skills will you contribute to the program as a participant. Eligible students will meet with the Indigenous Student Services team for an interview as part of the selection process.
Session is limited to 10 participants. Applicants must be ages 18-21 and must not be enrolled in a post-secondary program (students can have accepted an offer).
