Sto:lo Nation's Eagle Vision Program targets parents/guardians who are long-term Income Assistance recipients (greater than five years) and single parents with serious barriers to independence. Partners in the program include Sto:lo Nation Human Resources Development which provides access to Career Development Practitioners for workshop one-to-one supports; Yellow Cedar Learning Centre, which provides in-kind services of assessment and remediation of learning and literacy issues, and Qwi Qwelstom Restorative Justice Program, which facilitates traditional Sto:lo forms of dispute settlement, healing circles, case management and one-to-one intervention.
The Eagle Vision Program is a twelve week pre-employment program. Clients discover their blocks to moving beyond Income Assistance in a cultural and supportive atmosphere. They learn crafts for pride and confidence building, a family tree and culture module for self identity, and field trips to discover new resources. The workshop is divided into three modules: self discovery; personal skills development, and creating the journey; each module is four weeks in duration.
