NOTE: Priority for workshops will be given to schools in the Vancouver School Board due to cost and ability to travel. We specifically encourage applications from teachers at Britannia, Templeton, VanTech, and the alternate schools. Contribution for stewardship workshop: We suggest a contribution of $95 for the 1 hour workshop. Fees cover staff time, travel and materials. However, we strive to make our programming accessible to everyone. Please do not hesitate to contact us if cost is a barrier.
