College Knowledge 101 (pilot project)
We have developed a 2.5-day seminar called College Knowledge 101. This seminar is geared for First Nations, Métis,
and Inuit high school students in grade 10 to grade 12 who are thinking about going to college and live within the Coast
Mountain College (CMTN) service region. This seminar will take place at the CMTN Terrace campus. We have worked
with CMTN’s First Nations Council (FNC) to identify areas that high school graduates struggle with when they first leave
home. We’re hoping to provide the participants confidence to make their post-secondary education experience as great
as it can be.
Spaces are limited to 15 students! There is no cost for the students to take part – accommodations, food, transportation
(while at the seminar) is all covered by CMTN.
