Are you a young woman or young man between 25 and 35 years of age?
Well, here is a program you might be interested in:
A new program called “Arctic Voices Fellowship” is expected to start up in June of 2010.
Nancy Karetak-Lindell a former Member of Parliament for Nunavut will be directing this program out of her hometown of Arviat in Nunavut.
She says they’re looking for twelve youth from the five Arctic regions, the Yukon, North West Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut.
Youth who are of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis ancestry are strongly encouraged to apply.
Karetak-Lindell says once these twelve are selected they’ll be known as “Arctic Voice Fellows”.
In this program the youth will be given the opportunity to research and develop policy ideas that they believe will benefit their communities and the north.
Once they start in June of 2010, each youth will be paid $25,000.00 over a two year span.
