Doyon Foundation has extended the deadline to apply for our open project manager position for our new language revitalization mentor-apprentice program. This is a full-time position based at our office in Fairbanks. The new close date is Friday, November 5, 2021. Interested applicants are encouraged to learn more about the position and apply online.

According to a 2020 survey, 87 percent of Doyon, Limited shareholders want to improve their ability to speak their Native language. This is incredibly important, as all nine of the Doyon region languages are in extreme danger of extinction. To support the revitalization of our languages, our new mentor-apprentice program will pair language learners with proficient speakers who will support the students’ journey to fluency. Apprentices will then teach their Native language to others, creating a language-learning ripple effect throughout the region.

Our new project manager will be responsible for coordinating, implementing and evaluating the new mentor-apprentice project. Tasks will include selecting project participants, preparing training materials, conducting check-in meetings, coordinating gatherings, collecting video and audio, disseminating a survey, and reporting on project goals.
