A pilot project encouraging First Nations youth to stay in school so they may develop entrepreneurial training and receive mentoring from the business community will be launched at Bonar Law Memorial School in the upcoming school year. The Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship pilot project - the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada - is the result of a partnership involving the Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative, the Department of Education and School District 16.
