Summer Training Programs – Canadian Forces/Aboriginal
Posted on Friday, February 26, 2016 by Admin C.L.
SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAMS
The Forces offers three Summer Training Programs that combine military lifestyle with cultural awareness: Bold Eagle, Raven and Black Bear. These six-week long programs give you a taste of military training with the option – but no commitment – to join the Forces. The training is based on the Army Reserve Basic Military Qualification and is taught by military instructors. Subjects include General Military Knowledge, Weapons Handling, Navigation, First Aid, Drill, and Survival Skills.
All three Summer Training Programs begin with a Culture Camp. The camp is designed to ease the transition from civilian to military lifestyle, and focuses on common spiritual beliefs.
All Culture Camps are conducted by Elders of different First Nations and Aboriginal groups.
Bold Eagle – is open to Aboriginal Peoples living in Western Canada or Northwestern Ontario. Participants will train in Wainwright, AB.
Raven – is the Navy’s summer program for Aboriginal Peoples from across Canada. Participants train in Esquimalt, BC.
Black Bear – is an Army training program for Aboriginal peoples from across Canada that takes place in Oronocto, NB.
Travel is arranged to and from the program, living accommodations, food, clothing and all equipment. While you are in the program you are temporarily a Forces member and are paid around $3,500 for completing the full six weeks.
To qualify for the summer training programs, you must have completed at least Grade 10 (Sec IV in Quebec). Applications are due by the end of March so that all the arrangements can be made for the beginning of the programs in July. When filling out the online application, indicate the Summer Training Program you are interested in under “Program Choices”.

Global Citizen Youth Leadership Program (GCYL)
Posted on Monday, March 2, 2015 by Admin C.L.
Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation – GCYL
The information below is taken right from the site above.
The Global Citizen Youth Leadership (GCYL) program is a unique, short-term, immersive, international experiential learning opportunity for globally-minded Saskatchewan high school youth.
It is an opportunity for nine Saskatchewan youth to visit and connect with Saskatchewan non-governmental organizations working in El Salvador. Pre-departure training and debriefing will ensure that youth participants are supported in understanding these new experiences.
In El Salvador, youth participants will meet with staff and volunteers from local organizations, as well as community members who have been impacted by international development efforts. The youth will learn more about the work being done in partnership with Saskatchewan non-governmental organizations and their international colleagues, and how they can continue to be involved in international development, locally and globally. Youth participants will be accompanied to El Salvador by experienced staff from The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund, The Committee Against AIDS (CoCoSI), and the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC).
Upon returning the selected youth will participate in a speaking tour across Saskatchewan, sharing their experiences and perceptions through a presentation and video they create during their time in El Salvador.
SCIC is accepting nominations of Saskatchewan high school youth who are expecting to complete their Grade 11 courses by June 2015.
The GCYL program aims to be representative of youth from diverse regional and cultural backgrounds including northern and southern, rural and urban communities throughout Saskatchewan. Therefore, we encourage applicants from across the province.
