Mi’kmaq Confederacy Education Program, Transitions Coordinator

by Tammy MacDonald

 

The Mi’kmaq Confederacy of Prince Edward Island Transitions Coordinator is responsible for creating, implementing, and monitoring school transition strategies for Indigenous students across the province of Prince Edward Island. This Education position has been created to support and maintain successful transitions for Indigenous youth as they make their way through a Band Operated and/or provincial school system. The transition from home to school, elementary school to junior high school, junior high school to senior high school, and finally, senior high school to post-secondary education (Holland College, U.P.E.I., etc.) can be very challenging and cause a lot of anxiety. It will be the Transitions Coordinator’s responsibility to ensure each of these transitions proceed as smooth as possible, and thus, allow each Indigenous student to experience positive feelings about the changes that occur in his/her school life.
