RAM Continues Indigenous Youth Scholarship for Second Year in a row
September 30th, National Day of Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day, is a very important day to honour the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. It’s a day to step back, reflect, and remind us of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools.
In an effort to support advancement for Indigenous communities and further reconciliation, we are pleased to announce RAM will continue our Scholarship for Indigenous Youth. For the second consecutive year, we will support three Indigenous Youth with $2000 grants, with preference for students that are pursuing engineering, inspection or construction and project management fields of study.
RAM honours and extends our deepest sympathy to those children, their families, and Survivors of the Residential School system and the generations of Indigenous people who have been deeply affected by Residential Schools. We encourage our team members, and all who call Canada home, to wear an Orange Shirt today to honour the thousands of Survivors of residential schools, and remember those who could not return home.
May we never forget.
RAM is also pleased to announce that we’re sponsoring the BC Lions game today through donation of 50 tickets. Tickets will be donated to the IRSS so the BC Lions may host Residential School survivors and deserving kids and families on this day of Truth and Reconciliation.
