The Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute at the University of Alberta is dedicated to the revitalization of Indigenous languages through documentation, teaching, and literacy.

Each summer, I assist in classrooms which focus on imparting linguistic training to teachers and speakers of First Nation / Métis / Inuit  languages across Canada.

The Language Documentation Training Center at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa trains speakers of underdocumented languages in the skills of language documentation and spreads awareness about linguistic diversity and language endangerment.

Hawaiʻi School Kids Investigating Language in Life and Society (HI-SKILLS) is an after-school program that puts students at the center of linguistic discovery while learning valuable research skills. Our workshops give participants the chance to appreciate the role of language in society, create their own language projects, and, of course, have fun!

The HI-SKILLS program is a collaboration between the Department of Linguistics and Department of Second Language Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
