Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have opportunities for a Language Nest and working through our organization we will be able to access the resource people from all our member communities. We also have much interest from young people who would like to get more information on the Mentor-Apprentice program. We also have interest from Language teachers in the area to form a Professional Learning Community and have regular meetings to share resources, discuss successes and difficulties and engage in collaborative planning.
Challenges: 
Some of the challenges we face are the fact that we cover a wide area and there is some dialect difference between speakers. That many language speakers are not trained teachers, but fluent and learning speakers who have been asked to fill a much needed role.
