Making a Positive Difference: "Walking Away With A Good Mind And A Good Spirit" Evaluation of the Stewardship Technicians Training Program (STTP)

This report is an evaluation of the STTP commissioned by the Coastal Stewardship Network, a program of Coastal First Nations - Great Bear Initiative. After multiple years of offering the program, and many requests to continue training, CFN decided to conduct a formal evaluation of three student cohorts that took the two-year program between 2015-2019 with the goals of informing future design and delivery of STTP; sharing the STTP story with stewardship departments, participating communities and funders; and providing information for other on-the-land/on-the-water training programs, communities or institutions currently conducting or interested in creating Indigenous stewardship training programs.
