Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Generating greater language revitalization capacity through educational (partnership with UVic DILR) and work opportunities. Currently offer SENĆOŦEN immersion programs K - 4 through grade 4 in our school as well as a new community-based language nest.
Challenges: 
Declining number of Elders whose native tongue is SENĆOŦEN. Currently we have less than a handful. Still only having moderate success with community based lessons.
