Super Saturday program boosted
The Saskatoon Tribal Council held its eighth annual Super Saturday Corporate Dinner Oct. 15.
The program, developed in the late-1990s in conjunction with the U of S, introduces Aboriginal students to the University.
It aims to build self-esteem and encourage healthy attitudes towards education among First Nations youth. About 720 First Nations children per year take part in campus-based activities which combine Western education with traditional First Nations knowledge.
Last year, the Super Saturday program won a $31,100 Promo Science Award from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
