November 13

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - WE ARE SOLD OUT! 

The CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre is located on the traditional territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations and we are excited to invite Indigenous students across the Lower Mainland for the fourth edition of Indigenous Junior J-School, created in partnership with TV and film producer Steve Sxwithul'txw.

Are you an Indigenous student between the ages of 15-21? Now is your chance to take part in a one of a kind experience. Start your morning getting inspired by CBC's Indigenous journalists and veteran hosts, including Angela Sterritt, Duncan McCue, Ian Hanomansing, Gloria Macarenko and others, followed by an exclusive Snotty Nose Rez Kids concert, and a delicious lunch to refuel. 

In the afternoon, get hands on journalism training from the CBC team and Steve Sxwilthul'txw. You will learn what it means to be a journalist, participate in exclusive workshops on editing, producing and writing and win some great prizes along the way. We will also have special guests from all the journalism programs on hand, for some one-on-one questions about college or journalism programs. 

This event is FREE but spots are limited so register today to save your spot!
