Becoming a student

Indigenous student ambassadors

Cousins are VCC student ambassadors who, with their student perspective, make valuable contributions that ensure a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive student journey.

Incoming Indigenous learners at VCC can connect with current Indigenous students or “cousins” for guidance in navigating the post-secondary experience.

You can find our Cousin Ambassadors in our Indigenous Gathering Spaces at the Broadway and Downtown campuses where they provide guidance and support as you navigate your way through post-secondary.
