Grantee Success

Togiak, AK

When we conduct Circle of Life, the elders recognize the teachings and are so appreciative of the venue to share their knowledge.  Younger people really seem to connect with elders and are hungry and ask for more. – Helen Gregorio from the Calricaraq Training:   March 2019.

Daphne Gustafson

Grantee Success

Fairbanks, AK

A major training event, a three-day workshop, “The Circle Process as an Educational Tool,” was held in May 2019.  The training was led by Greg Anelon, Technical Assistance Advisor with RurALCAP with Phil Burdick, facilitating.  In addition to the Fairbanks Native Association Johnson-O’Malley Program staff, the Fairbank North Star Borough School District social services managers attended.  By using this cultural approach with targeted students, staff was equipped with a skill to develop emotional literacy, to promote healing and to build healthy relationships in our school communities.  It is through this process invisible barriers to learning may begin to break down.  Emerging will be a trauma-sensitive approach to support our students in a restorative school community.  – Daphne Gustafson from The Circle Facilitator Workshop:   May 2019.

We love to hear your success!
