RGC is working on developing a resource for Gwich’in Participants to find our about job opportunities and to explore career planning pathways.
Career planning pathways
Education today will help us lead tomorrow
Once Gwich’in are under Gwich'in Government, we will need trained Gwich’in to take up jobs in government administration and program delivery. The Regional Gwich’in Collaborative encourages Gwich’in youth to pursue training and education today so that they have the skills needed to lead our communities tomorrow.
The following resources are intended to support Gwich’in career planning. Please check-back for updates.
Indigenous governance post- secondary programs
Post-secondary education (certificates, diplomas and/or degrees) can contribute to Indigenous governance by exploring tools and options that can be woven into Indigenous governance systems. Generally, these programs support learning in politics, public policy and/or administration and are intended to build strong leadership skills while acknowledging the unique socio-political and historical context of Indigenous people in Canada.
