The workshop provides a valuable opportunity to learn about the Indigenous Tutoring & Mentoring Program (ITMP), a volunteer-driven initiative that offers free online tutoring and mentoring to self-identifying Indigenous students in all K-12 core subjects. Run by passionate SFU students and alumni, this program is designed to foster meaningful relationships between Indigenous students and their post-secondary tutors, inspiring students to strive for academic and personal excellence.
