Developed in the Yukon, this infographic shares the main pillars of the successful after-school literacy and tutoring program run by the Kwanlin Dun First Nation in Whitehorse. Information is shared about relationship-building, a welcoming and flexible learning environment, cultural awareness, tutor recruitment, liaisons in schools, acknowledging trauma, fostering literacy, and building self-esteem.

Educators are encouraged to involve Elders and include local Indigenous languages as much as possible.
