Nurturing Capacity Synthesis Materials
Nurturing Capacity Synthesis Report
This report includes findings from 59 projects across Canada initiated and completed between 2014 and 2019. Indspire reviewed and synthesized these reports to determine what was held in common and to document these findings.
The Nurturing Capacity Program focused on education initiatives that supported the needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis students across Canada. Many of the projects focused on more than one student population. Nurturing Capacity Program projects were implemented within elementary schools (kindergarten to Grade 4), middle schools (Grades 5–8) and high schools (Grades 9–12). As seen in our student populations, many of the projects focused on more than one education level.
Projects implemented throughout the country were evaluated, from the interior forests of British Columbia to the sandy shores of Nova Scotia. When we consider the size of student populations within each province, it is no surprise that we see the bulk of the projects hailing from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
Nurturing Capacity: Documenting Community Success Program Implementation Guidebook
The Nurturing Capacity: Documenting Community Success Program Implementation Guidebook was created to support communities moving forward in the development, implementation and evaluation of innovative education programs across Canada. The guidebook will serve as a community resource and touchpoint for individuals interested in creating their own educational programming and documenting the key steps along the way.
