VIU will be hosting a free summer camp for Indigenous youth that was organized by the ‘su’luqw’a’ Community Cousins Indigenous student mentorship program. “The biggest thing about this camp is to get Indigenous youth thinking about post-secondary,” said VIU Office of Indigenous Education and Engagement Program Coordinator Sheldon Scow. “A lot of us feel like we don’t belong.”
