EleV program sets goal to support 100,000 Indigenous Youth

The Mastercard Foundation has announced its goal of reaching 100,000 youth through the EleV program. The EleV program, established in 2017, supports Indigenous youth in gaining postsecondary education and pursuing meaningful work. The program has partnered with Indigenous-led organizations and higher education institutions that have close ties to Indigenous communities, such as the University of Lethbridge. Through the EleV program, the Mastercard Foundation will invest $500M into Indigenous youth and will work with partners across Canada on growth sectors such as clean energy, eco-tourism, and digital technology. “Our deep partnership with the Blackfoot Confederacy allows us to find innovative new ways to support success for Indigenous students across the education system because they know the challenges and the solutions,” said ULethbridge President Dr Michael Mahon.
