Volunteer with the Ch’nook Aboriginal Management Program

The success of the Aboriginal Management Program and its students relies heavily on the participation of volunteers whether they be current post-secondary students, alumni, or local community contributors. 

Aboriginal entrepreneurs are the key to building a healthy economy both on and off reserve. Over 34,000 Aboriginal entrepreneurs across Canada operate businesses that contribute to local economies, sustain home communities and compete in global markets. In order to ensure that our students are maximizing their return on this program, we require the help of various volunteers.
