Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The Tsawout Learning House is an ideal facility for the children and youth to gather after school, with up to 40 attending on a regular basis, therefore giving us an opportunity to bring in Language Resource Instructors M-F throughout the school year and during the Tsawout Learning House Summer Camp.
Challenges: 
The Tsawout Learning House is currently not licensed and relies totally on grants/funds and donations and volunteers through the generosity of organizations such as First People's Cultural Council, the Anglican Church of Canada (Anglican Healing Fund), F.N.I.Y.E.S., N.R.T. and the Saanich Peninsula and Greater Victoria Community. The SENĆOŦEN Language Curriculum has been started to be developed by Ivy Seward and is still in the process of being developed by Belinda Claxton
