Every year, Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak hosts a celebration to honour Aboriginal youth who are recipients of the Next Step Award, Post-Secondary Scholarship, Aboriginal Scholarship and Service Award, and participants who have completed internships and work placements across the civic system. On Thursday, November 19, 2015, a total of 58 awards and recognitions were presented to youth.
Sixteen Next Step Awards were offered to youth who have demonstrated commitment in taking their “next step” towards reaching their educational and/or employment goals. Each award up to $1,000 will assist with costs such as work equipment, school supplies, transportation, childcare or tuition. This grant is open to youth who have participated in programs offered by Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak’s partner organizations.
Ten Post-Secondary Scholarships were presented to local Aboriginal youth between the ages of 15 and 30 who are registered at a post-secondary institution and have expressed interest in a career at the City of Winnipeg. Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each will be applied to their tuition.
Thirteen Aboriginal Scholarship and Service Awards were presented to students in Grades 7 to 12 Winnipeg schools for their efforts in academic and community leadership. This program encourages students to stay in school and consider a post-secondary education towards careers found at the City of Winnipeg.
Nineteen youth were recognized for completing internships and work placements in the following City departments: Audit, Corporate Finance, Corporate Support Services, Community Services, Planning, Property and Development, and Winnipeg Transit. These youth have been exposed to hands-on experience and mentorship in their various fields. Some of these youth have returned to post-secondary school or have gained further employment.
