The University of Alberta’s Experiential Learning in Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship Program for Black Youth (ELITE) program has been expanded to Carleton University. The program provides students aged 15 to 22 with placements to gain hands-on and work-integrated experiential learning, networking opportunities, coaching, and wellness sessions to support their future careers in STEM. ELITE will provide up to 10 internships for students in Ottawa. “It allows us to provide Black youth with additional tools that can support their upward mobility and give them an opportunity to break down barriers or circumvent them in meaningful and productive ways,” said program director and UAlberta professor André McDonald.
