Elders in Residence Program
The Elders in Residence Program is intended to provide the support of elders and knowledge keepers in classrooms and in schools to support learning.  The role of an elder can be to enhance cultural perspectives and share wisdom and teachings, promote awareness of cultural traditions, encourage the use of Kwak'wala in schools, or act as a mentor and guide for all students.

Interested in working on call to support our students by becoming a part of our Elders in Residence Program?
