Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The communities continue to build and implement the revitalization plan. We continue to seek funding support from numerous sources to support a multi-faceted approach that has for reaching impacts in the community. The mentor-apprentice program continues to be important in this program as we continue to support teachers who want to teach in the language as much as possible. We are branching out with a new MAP cohort, supporting silent speakers, and developing preschool curriculum materials.
Challenges: 
Although the next 3 years will see a significant change in available funding, it still will be a challenge to meet all of the language and cultural needs. The Laich-Kwil-Tach communities have been actively seeking supporting funds and will continue to do so to support the growth of this revitalization program.
