I'm not sure how many of you have heard of "Lead Your Way" but it is highly advertised in Ontario. I highly recommend checking this out!

"The National Aboriginal Role Model Program celebrates the accomplishments of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis youth aged 13 to 30. Lead Your Way! inspires Aboriginal youth to strive to reach their goals.

Each year, 12 Aboriginal role models are selected for their achievements, leadership, and innovation, who are nominated by their peers. Throughout the year, the role models will attend celebrations, school functions, workshops, and conferences to share their stories with other Aboriginal youth."

Though it says Aboriginal many times, it is more of an inclusive term for First Nations, Métis and Inuit.

This is also an eye opener to become and inspiration for your community. Even the small things can make a big difference. You are able to read the profiles of those selected and see how they became role models.
