Mentoring & Tutoring at H.S. Billings High School

About the program

HS Billings Indigenous students in grades 10 & 11 (secondary 4 & 5) need extra support to reinforce skills (goal setting, time management, critical thinking, career planning) and keep up with school work in subjects, especially Math, French, Sciences and History. The need identified by HSB staff is to offer a multi-faceted (academic support, socio-emotional and career-planning) accessible after-school program that respects the interests of youth and supports their strengths & aspirations.

Land Acknowledgment

Map of Montreal

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’keha:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respects the Kanien’keha:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.* 

Recognizing the history of where you stand is important, and becoming increasingly common practice when hosting events and activities across Canada.

Here are a few tips to remember if you want to make a land acknowledgment before a class presentation, in a written document, or when hosting an event.
