Indigenous Training Module Enhancement Project

First Light has had an exponential increase in the number of requests from social workers, legal aid, and other public servants in the justice field, and plans to design modules that include local examples and statistics that will have the greatest impact on their work. This investment will provide the opportunity to develop four new modules to enhance the current Cultural Diversity Training package. These topics will include intergenerational trauma, systemic violence, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and family structures and parenting. A gender lens will be applied to new modules, and the outcomes should indicate that participants in the training will have an improved understanding of how the topics outlined above impact Indigenous women and girls differently. Additionally, participants will indicate that they understand how their new knowledge can be applied to their work so that they can better support Indigenous Women and Girls.

Grant amount: $50,000
