C O N N E C T E D N O R T H : A J O U R N E Y O F T R A N S F O R M AT I O N & W E L L- B E I N G 41 Future Pathways: Fireside Chats was developed in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic affecting the communities, schools, and students we work with. Social, print, and TV media is filled with information about COVID-19 - so much so that many are experiencing information overload and may be overwhelming to some. An escape from the narrative is needed and Future Pathways is in the perfect position to provide this for students. Our video series features over 40 Indigenous Role Models from a variety of careers speaking about their journeys, providing hope for the future, talking about how they handle uncertainty in their lives and careers, and how they balance & maintain well-being. Themes of addressing uncertainty, hope for the future, and well-being offers insights on how students can deal with the current pandemic situation while simultaneously building skills and competencies to navigate a world of uncertainty and volatility. HT TPS://CONNEC TEDNORTH.ORG/EN/FUTUREPATHWAYS/FIRESIDE- CHAT The Connected North Future Pathways Navigator platform is a tool for youth across the North to access support for their transition from high school. Tips, resources and video testimonials have been carefully curated as a result of focus groups and outreach by Connected North's vast network of Indigenous Role Models with the aim of offering easily navigable and highly practical advice from one youth to another. At Connected North, we recognize that student's experiences in the classroom cannot be disconnected from their lived realities, and by offering learning that supports and celebrates the whole individual, our aim is to equip and inspire the next generation of community leaders to succeed on their next big step.
