In addition to running its own programming, HGHES offers education and community-based research services to visiting programs on Haida Gwaii.
Design and Delivery
HGHES staff can work with you to design and/or deliver customized programming that suits the needs of your institution, while contextualizing the program in place and in community.
All HGHES programs endeavour to integrate and employ as many local educators as possible. Empowering locals and students to share their voices, exchange best-practices, and come together to collaborate enriches learning and provides the bedrock upon which community development rests.
For more information, please contact HGHES Operations Manager, Emily-Sky Collins, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 250-559-7885 ext. 230
"The Haida Gwaii Semester was truly life changing. I came away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of community, multi-disciplinary collaboration, and traditional knowledge. I made meaningful friendships, felt inspired each and everyday, and really felt I was my best self. The communities on Haida Gwaii deserve just as much, if not more admiration as the natural environment that they are built on. I am incredibly grateful for the experiences that I came away with because of the generosity of those that call Haida Gwaii home.”
"Doing the Haida Gwaii Semester is one of the best things I have ever done. For me, it was the perfect place to live and learn. Combining life and learning was quite seamless and happened organically [. . . ] I still aim to return to the islands as soon as I can.”
"I loved the program, the people I met, everything we learned, all the places we got to explore; this semester was the highlight of my university career!"
