In our role as a Student and Family Support Workers we work collaboratively with students’
families within the context of the school, and community. Furthermore, we work collaboratively
to build the capacity of the persons in our care within the life-spaces where they work, play,
learn and live. We model the core values of Wahkotowin (good relations), Iyiniw
Mamotohnehickikan (Cree though), Nehiyaw Pimatisiwin (Way of life, open mind), and
Nehiyawewin (Cree Identity, self- reflection).
We believe in building relationships in the space between (where we collaborate). A space that
provides therapeutic care by working for, alongside and together with the child, youth and their
families. We work to empower personal agency (student power) and reduce the harm that
hinders persons in our care from striving. We are mindful of cultural humility (self -reflection, I
am not an expert) and cultural competence (inquiry) through knowing (and not- knowing), doing
and the being of praxis. Our professional practice promotes care from the inside out. We look
forward to sharing our perspective with you. Thank you for your attention.
