[CBC News] Saskatoon Tribal Council partners with charity in push to boost Indigenous students' graduation rates

September 1, 2017

"The Saskatoon Tribal Council has partnered with Pathways to Education Canada to help give young Indigenous people the resources to reach their full potential.

The partnership is the first of its kind between a tribal council and Pathways to Education, a national charitable organization that helps students from low-income communities succeed in their high school careers.

The move is part of the STC's push to boost Grade 12 graduation rates among its members to at least as high, or higher than, the provincial average by 2020.

STC Chief Felix Thomas said students who are identified and recruited for the Pathways to Education program will receive mentorship and support, including access to a physical space where they can study peacefully. "
