Students complete RAVEN Aboriginal Youth Initiative

This outreach program is designed to build bridges into the Aboriginal communities in Canada and to make Aboriginal youth aware of potential military or civilian careers with the Department of National Defence.

The program is a total of 6 weeks long and gives you a very good idea at life in the Canadian Forces. You can complete the program with the option - but no commitment - to pursue a career in the Reserve Force, Regular Force, or work in a Civilian Occupation with the National Defence.

RAVEN is held in British Columbia at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt at the Work Point Barracks, and the staff are current Military members who have years of experience. The Culture Camp phase is administered by Elders from different First Nations and Aboriginal groups.

Kaiyra Mackenzie, Jaden Rabesca, Jasarah Rabesca, Raykiel Football, Harlena Erasmus, Nicole Zoe attend from Behchokǫ̀, and Christan Beaverho, from Whatì.
