Rise Learning and Development Program

Knowledge is a gift that we receive and share. Reflected in the Seven Sacred Teachings, “to cherish knowledge is to know wisdom”, it is with gratitude that we listen, build and share knowledge.

Are you interested in learning more about Truth and Reconciliation? Sharing knowledge is a big part of what we do every day at Rise – whether it’s through our Rise Learning and Development Program, a keynote address, participation on a panel discussion, or sharing ideas through a media interview, we enjoy sharing knowledge and inspiration, sparking ideas and evoking action that leads to a positive impact with advancing Truth, Reconciliation and Indigenous inclusion across Turtle Island. 

Rise Learning and Development Program 

The Rise Learning and Development Program offers participants an opportunity to experience a variety of Truth and Reconciliation topics. Each session is designed to run between 60 minutes and three-hours, topic depending. Throughout each learning session, participants will actively engage in a variety of small and large group activities, in plenary dialogue, as well as record learnings in their learning resource guide. Experiential development will be supported by the Rise ‘Nine-ways’ program, with further learning and activities provided to participants to ensure that learning does not stop in the classroom.
