THE FIRST NATIONS ADULT EDUCATION SCHOOL COUNCIL – THE FNAESC
Formed as a Trust in 2012, the First Nations Adult Education School Council seeks to provide the necessary leadership for the implementation and operations of the First Nation Regional and Local Adult Education Centers (RAECs) of Quebec. The FNAESC is committed to providing high quality adult learning environments that focus on culturally relevant student-centered learning in a safe and healthy environment that reflects the values of First Nations and allows the students to gain the necessary knowledge and skills required for their future educational endeavours and employment.
There are currently four RAECs supported by the FNAESC. They are located in the communities of Lac Simon (Kitci Amik RAEC), Kahnawake, Listuguj and Uashat mak Mani-Utenam.
The mission brings the FNAESC to establish partnerships with different educational institutions with the objective of offering more training, adapted to the needs of learners in the communities.
