Courage To Soar Program


Start Your Career


"The Courage to Soar" is for Aboriginal women who are survivors/at risk of domestic violence and require support to identify practical holistic steps to education and training opportunities and career options. It offers support to women who want to empower their economic lives.

  • Are you a First Nation, Inuit or Métis woman?
  • Over 18 years of age?
  • At risk of or ever experienced domestic violence?
  • Seeking to build economic security?
  • Do you have a career goal?

Under the Courage to Soar Program, Minwaashin Lodge Aboriginal Women’s Support Centre is offering training and career development opportunities to highly motivated and committed candidates interested in pursuing a career in Office Administration.  What does Courage to Soar offer?

Full tuition and textbook sponsorship for the Office Administration Program at Willis College or Office Administration at Algonquin College. Note: Eligible applicants are required to have a source of income in place for living expenses before entering the training program.

Forty-hour job placement and employment agency referrals after graduation.
