We need people from the Indigenous community to help lead and facilitate activities, programs and/or services families have asked for in St. Thomas-Elgin as part of the Journey Together project.

It is vitally important that all activities, programs and services we bring to the community are requested and led by members of the Indigenous community. Each type of activity, program or service our Indigenous leaders would like to participate in will be a bit different. Some may be a volunteer position (for example we have a volunteer helping now with project posters).

The majority of the project programs, services or activities will be paid. Also, the grant application will include a part-time Indigenous Project Coordinator, which would be advertised as a part-time job if the grant application is successful.
 
Any out of pocket expenses such as travel or materials will also be paid. Each contributor will have a one-on-one sharing session with the Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin project team to make sure they are being honoured for their time in a way that is best for each person.

We are looking for people who would like to become Indigenous leaders across many areas such as Aboriginal culture and celebration, storytelling, teaching traditional foods/cooking, art activities for different ages groups and more!!
