Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The communities are building their revitalization plan and building the base of fluency through our mentor-apprentice program is key to its success.
Challenges: 
Time and funding are always the biggest challenge. While there is a sense of urgency and demand for language opportunities increases, the cost of funding programs that can offer a significant contribution to developing language proficiency and fluency is prohibitive. For this reason we continually seek support from external sources to compliment the significant internal contribution of almost $50,000 each year, paid for by the Laich-Kwil-Tach nations.
