August 29, 2016. Students from NorQuest College’s third annual First Nation, Métis and Inuit Summer Youth Leadership Program celebrated successful completion on Aug. 26. Thirty-six youth earned high school credits through the program. This year’s theme focused on self-esteem and leadership development where each student took part in activities such as volunteering at the food bank, learning about the uses of Indigenous medicinal plants, and physically-testing events such as team building on high ropes. Youth who participated came mainly from the Edmonton region.
