E-Spirit is about making a "human capital investment" that will provide the participant with valuable skills needed for today's marketplace. Assisting students today, while still in high school, gives them time and the information they require to make informed choices about their education and career paths.

This program is designed to increase Aboriginal youth participants' awareness of entrepreneurial/business opportunities, management/business skills, and e-commerce and technological capacities.

Cash prizes, computers, cool Web sites and resources, a chance to meet other students online and in person, recognition and awards are just some of the features of this initiative.
