We need your votes!

Remember a few weeks ago, when we posted about our partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC) and a new eMentoring program for Aboriginal youth?

Well, that very same program has been selected as 1 of 16 finalists for the Changemakers Initiative: Inspiring Approaches to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Learning.

The most exciting part is that the awards are given based on community opinion. This means that voting determines who receive the awards. This is an great way to involve the public and have them acknowledge amazing work in their community.

Please show your support by voting online for eMentoring BEFORE March 21, 2012.

Also, please spread the word to your co-workers, friends, family and your social networks. We hope you take this opportunity to help icouldbe.org and UBC achieve another eMentoring milestone!
