Northern Youth in Service

Open to youth in Nunavut, the NWT, or Yukon, aged 14-25

Northern Youth in Service (NYiS) is an NYA Program that helps youth start projects in their own communities. Youth receive training and funding that they need to create and start a project, and they can work with other youth, as a group, in a class, as a network, or by themselves. Past projects have included beading programs, hunting programs, sewing groups, art projects – any project of any type is a possibility!

Tutors for Students

Open to any student in high school or post-secondary (college or university) from Nunavut, the NWT or Yukon.

We will be having multiple virtual drop-in times for students to join and chat with a tutor and can also set up 1- on-1 sessions. Sessions are free and virtual and can be over video chat, email, messenger, by call, or texting.

Some of the things we can help out with include: Help with class material, understanding course content, specific homework questions, editing or helping with assignments, study skills and tips, exam preparation and test-taking skills, time management, organization and task managing, managing stress, and building confidence.
