Carrier Sekani Family Services (CSFS) has been building research capacity in their eleven communities in northern B.C. during the past decade. The Carrier Sekani First Nation peoples are situated northeast of Prince George, B.C. on a rural and remote reserve lands. The purpose of the Youth Bridging Survey Project was to address the issues that Aboriginal youth face in their communities, such as: lack of communication skills, self-awareness, home management, budgeting, low level of education, unemployment and training. The intention was to assist youth participants to become aware of their strengths and needs, and then address issues of career, education and training to aspire their future goals (CSFS, 2002).
