Why join the Mentor-Apprentice Program?

Applying for the Mentor-Apprentice Program as either a fluent Indigenous language speaker (mentor), or a committed learner (apprentice) will help support the revitalization and longevity of Indigenous languages and culture.

As a mentor, you have the chance to share your language knowledge and ensure future generations can communicate in the traditional languages of this land.

As an apprentice, you get the opportunity to learn from and build a relationship with an experienced and fluent mentor. As you become more fluent, you can teach others the language, creating ripple effects in your community.

Mentor-apprentice language learning has many positive ripple effects that are deep and far reaching.
