And we reach Indigenous children in several communities, including the Elsipogtog, Esgenoôpetitj, Eel Ground and Metepenagiag First Nations and Rexton Elementary, Meduxnekeag Consolidated and Andover Elementary schools which have children attending from Indian Island, Buctouche, Elsipogtog, Woodstock and Tobique.

Every year we ask teachers, students and our Roots of Empathy Instructors for their feedback on the program.  Here is a sample of what we’ve heard from teachers who hosted the program in their classrooms.

  • 91% of teachers strongly agreed or agreed that as a result of Roots of Empathy, students are more inclusive or accepting of others who are different from themselves (including culture, race, special needs, gender, etc.).
  • 87% of students reported learning that being a parent and caring for a baby is a lot of hard work
