Bold Eagle Program




The Bold Eagle Program 

Are you an Indigenous youth living in western Canada or north-western Ontario? Interested in a challenging summer experience that delivers hands-on skills development, encourages teamwork, provides physical fitness training and promotes cultural awareness?
Bold Eagle is the program for you! This unique summer employment program combines Indigenous culture and teachings with military training, that will help you develop valuable skills such as self-confidence, self-discipline, teamwork, time management, respect and fitness.
The 6 week program is conducted from early July to late August each year.
Benefits of the program
During the program, you’ll find out more about yourself and what you’re capable of achieving through hard work, perseverance and teamwork. You’ll also have the chance to meet Indigenous youth from across western Canada. Overall, the program will help you prepare yourself for the future – wherever that may take you.
During the program, we’ll provide you with: 
meals and accommodation
military clothing and equipment
transportation to and from Wainwright
over $4,200 in salary
At the end of the program, we can arrange with your high school guidance counselor to register your time in the program as career experience credits.
If you live near a Primary Reserve unit, you can continue to serve part-time in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) when you return to your community. This is an excellent part-time career option, and a chance to further your service in the CAF should you choose this route.
