Priority 5 – College and Career Readiness

Four Corners Counseling Connection, American Indian Cultural Awareness & Competency Practicum

November 15-17, 2018 | Monument Valley, UT

The West Comprehensive Center at WestEd is partnering with San Juan School District, Utah Division of Arts and Museums, and the Utah State Board of Education to provide a unique, regional, professional development and networking experience for school counselors, educators, and other professionals who advocate for, serve, and support Indigenous students. This intensive, three-day journey will increase participants’ knowledge and understanding of American Indian history and culture. Travelers will examine four focus areas: sovereignty, social structure, intergenerational grief and trauma, and learning process; learn about peacemaking, self-care, and trauma-sensitive schools; and experience cultural reverence activities, performances, and stories.
