Categories: , /

This pamphlet was created by the BC First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and BC First Nations Schools Association (FNSA), in consultation with Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), to share information with First Nations representatives who are interested in starting a First Nation Adult Secondary Education Program.

This pamphlet includes four sections focused on key topics for establishing a new program.

  1. Confirming that there is community support and an appropriate space for the program.
  2. Planning the program’s structure and thinking about what the program is intended to offer.
  3. How graduating students will be awarded the Dogwood or Adult Dogwood.
  4. Preparing to open and operate the program, including accessing funding and getting the necessary staff in place.
