What Is Cedar?
CEDAR, which stands for Cross-cultural Education through Demonstration, Activity and Recreation, is a program established to provide fun learning opportunities, in a culturally relevant context, in order to help Indigenous youth develop a comfortable relationship with the UBC Campus, Faculty, and the UBC Indigenous community.
Since 2005, Cedar STEM Outreach and Mentorship has supported scientific learning for Indigenous youth on the UBC Vancouver Campus. In the many years that CEDAR has been running, hundreds of Indigenous youth have come to the Musqueam campus, with several participants returning as students in a variety of degree programs.

Cedar camp is a two week program in late July and early August focused on STEM Learning and the power of Indigenous Knowledge.
There are multiple opportunities for Indigenous youth to connect with UBC students on Campus. Find out more about the mentorship opportunities facilitated through the Cedar Program.
