A strong, prosperous, healthy North relies on creating opportunities for young people to feel prepared, hopeful, and ready to take on every challenge. To best achieve their potential, young Northerners require the knowledge, skills and competencies to make decisions about their career and education, and then pursue these pathways. Northern Compass meets this need and offers youth a better chance at fully seizing every opportunity available to them. Northern Compass intends to create practical tools and an innovative support network that address and eliminate the broad spectrum of barriers that youth across all three Territories face while making successful transitions into post-secondary education (PSE), careers, and beyond. The program model will motivate and encourage youth to graduate high school, make informed decisions about their future, and then provide the support and access necessary to pursue and achieve their goals.
