DG Community Tour

Director General Abraham Jolly will convene a delegation Monday to tour the communities of Eeyou/Eenou Istchee and speak directly with students.

“I want to reach out to our secondary school students,” Jolly said. “I want them to know that they’re not alone in their journey, that their challenges can be overcome, and that dreams can come true – in fact, they do. I want to leave them with tools and inspiration to continue their educational journey.”
