About the EleV Program at Yukon University

Yukon University has been administering Mastercard Foundation’s EleV Program since 2018. The Program vision is for Indigenous young people to be living Mino Bimaadiziwin – “a good life”, a holistic and Indigenized view of success in the Anishinaabe language. Realizing this ambitious vision will require systemic changes to our education, training and employment systems based on the direction of Indigenous youth and communities so that these systems value and support success for Indigenous youth.

Yukon University is currently in the second year of the renewed agreement, which extends until March 31, 2027. EleV is supporting a number of projects both at YukonU and in partnership with Yukon First Nation organizations. Reflection and co-learning, guided by a co-developed Learning Framework, are important components of the Mastercard Foundation partnership, which the Learning Facilitator will oversee.
