Queen’s and First Nations youth form mentorship project

March 26, 2014

A group of students from Queen’s University are travelling to a remote northern Ontario First Nation to provide mentorship and support to children in the community. The Queen’s students are members of the university rotary club and will travel to Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) to meet with children and help develop ideas for community development. "The youth know what needs to be done in their community and they know how to do it to a certain degree, but we want to provide them with the resources that they haven't been getting," explained Annie Hollis, a Queen’s student who has previously visited KI. The mentors will also provide leadership and public speaking seminars to the children. CTV
