Whether itâ€™s small, per-class, land-based learning, or a large gathering, the value of engagement for teachers and community has, in the case of SCI, created long-lasting relationships that make a positive impact both ways.
Held August 20 - 23, 2017, SCI's fourth Experiential Learning Initiative Gathering was hosted this year on Chipewyan Prairie First Nation traditional territory at Little Big LakeÂ by the Sekweha Youth Centre. Participants included youth from Sekweha Youth Centre, Lake Athabasca Youth Council, elders, community members, SCI partners and guests from various organizations. The Gathering included traditional cultural activities such as beading, traditional food preparation, Dene and Cree language lessons, and more.
This summer marked the third annual ELI Gathering, an opportunity for youth to "Walk in Two Worlds". This year the camp focused on activities for youth, as well as including them in the work planning process for 2017.
