Rural school districts, including reservations, don’t have the same access to education resources.
Today, Native American 10th-grade students from four rural districts traveled to Bismarck to explore possible career paths.
They had the chance to learn hands-on. Students were taught CPR, how to use a tourniquet, and how to tape up broken fingers.
Upstairs in graphic design, they were working their way through editing and design software.
A little over 70 students took part.
Standing Rock Community High School Student Frankie Jamerson explains, “It’s more hands-on. If we went to do it in Standing Rock, it wouldn’t be as hands-on, you know.”
It was a collaborative effort by ND United and the Missouri River Area Career and Technical Center.
This is a first-time event that they hope to continue.
