How can I participate in the ICSCI?
This is an 8-month professional development institute for School Counselors to grow their capacity and effectiveness in working with Indigenous students. Members of the ICSCI cohort will build their capacity to support student wellbeing and success in culturally responsive ways. The program will culminate with each cohort member writing a guidance curriculum unit on a topic of their choosing, which they can use in their schools and which will be published online as a resource for others. We are no longer accepting applications for this program at this time. Please check back periodically. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to our contact list.
