School Program Training in Eskasoni First Nation

During Michelle’s first few weeks in her new role as National Coordinator of the Listening to One Another Program, she had the amazing opportunity to travel to Eskasoni First Nation to deliver the LTOA School Program training for staff from Eskasoni First Nation.

What made this trip even more special was that she travelled with LTOA Regional Coordinator, Erin Aleck. Their travels together was such a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other better. They took time during one of their prep days to explore beautiful Cape Breton. They both loved walking around the many beaches and collecting rocks and sea glass along the way and taking many pictures to savour the memory!

It was so great to have Erin part of the training. Erin shared her experiences as a LTOA Program Facilitator which was so helpful for the staff who took part in the training. The team that Erin and Michelle trained from Eskasoni First Nation was absolutely amazing! The group of 15 participants was made up of individuals who worked in various sectors within the community. This made for such a unique training and created a very supportive wrap around approach when it came to delivering the LTOA School Program on the ground.

Erin and Michelle, as well as the rest of the LTOA team, are both excited to see where the LTOA Program grows within Eskasoni First Nation and hope to make a trip back to train staff on the LTOA Family Program.
