Language Revitalization Coaches Providing Virtual Support
The health and safety of everyone involved in FPCC programs, especially our Elders, is a top priority for FPCC. We know that language planning and implementing language initiatives is a collective process and we are grateful that technologies help us to stay connected with one another.
FPCC Language Revitalization Coaches are available to offer virtual support for First Nation communities and organizations in B.C. They can help communities build up their language revitalization initiatives through strategic language planning and by providing access to FPCC tools and resources. The coaches also offer ongoing project support and guidance to all FPCC grant recipients.
