Two important web sites for young people are now accessible directly from the K-Net homepage. TCS Youth and Youth Careers provide another exciting on-line location for youth to explore some healthy options for their lives.
Tina Kakepetum-Shultz worked with a great team of young people to design and publish a web site (http://nahsema.knet.ca) that will help every visit think twice about how they use tobacco. Health Canada's Tobacco Control Strategy (TCS) program provided some resources. Hopefully everyone will check out Blue Mason's (Keewaywin FN) TCS theme song and the accompanying animated graphics created by Derek Kenny (Bearskin FN). The Lung Brothers, Louie the Lung and Bruiser the Loser have a lot of valuable lessons to share for everyone to learn about the effects of smoking on our bodies.
The Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation team lead by Kevin Sherlock created an on-line careers in technology, science and engineering to encourage and support youth to explore these exciting career options. CoolCareers.ca is a great place to learn about other Aboriginal youth who are choosing these types of important careers along with many other sources of information to assist everyone in making these types of career choices.
OFNTSC received funding support for the CoolCareers.Ca site from Keewaytinook Okimakanak's Regional Management Organization, a service created by Industry Canada's First Nations SchoolNet program. Other useful web sites created by this project include:
