Yarning Over Lunch

The purpose of ‘Yarning Over Lunch’ is to provide a culturally appropriate meeting place for the local Aboriginal community that supports the following values and outcomes:

  • Each person and family is acknowledged, valued and celebrated.
  • New learning opportunities are provided.
  • Appropriate parent-child interaction is modelled.
  • Community involvement and contribution is encouraged.
  • Caregivers/parents are assisted and encouraged in their caring role.
  • Community members are heavily involved in the direction of the program.
  • Local services can regularly interact with community members.

The program is provided in Drouin and includes meals for participants, a pre-school program provided by a librarian, and presentations from local services.
