Mentor-Apprenticeship Program Application Assistance

The Mentor-Apprenticeship Program (MAP) is a way of learning an Indigenous language where a fluent speaker of the language (a mentor) teaches a committed language learner (an apprentice) through immersion.

The goal of the program is to have Apprentices increase their ability to understand and speak their language by “living life in the language.”

Training is provided for the following Indigenous languages:

Dene Kǝdǝ́
Dëne Sųłıné
Dene Zhatıé
Dinjii Zhu’ Ginjik

Please note this program is being offered by the Government of the Northwest Territories. If you require assistance in filling out the forms, please contact Languages Manager Debora Heron at or (867) 872-2770.
