Please give to the Queen's Fund.

The Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) has been around for 25 years and is an Indigenous-led community-based program, which recognizes that something needs to be done to improve access and graduation rates for Indigenous students and increase the number of Indigenous teachers in First Nations and provincial schools.

Since the program started, Queen's has collaborated with five community-based sites and organizations. Our current programs hire locally and bring qualified instructors to sites in Kenora, Rainy River and the Manitoulin/North Shore region to deliver a full Bachelors of Education program rooted in local cultures. Queen's also delivers a full program on campus.

So much of this progress is thanks to donor support.

And now, because of donors like you, the ATEP program is able to welcome an Elder-in-Residence who will provide language teaching, linguistic research, guest lecturing, guidance, support and counsel to students and assist with the development of future programming.
