Learning Always

Learning Always – A Manitoba Department of Education Project

Learning Always, an after-school education initiative, provides supportive, enriching activities to approximately 30 children, ages 7-15, twice-weekly after school at Rossbrook House.

The program is led by a 30-year teaching veteran who alters the content to fit the needs of the children attending the program. The participants play games, read, and engage in activities that help them with math, spelling, and language arts.

The participants also learn cultural teachings from community Elders and Knowledge Keepers. As well as discussion about feelings, self-care, and their personal rights.

The program has a regular team of staff plus volunteers.


“We have lots of fun, we always go outside to play games like tag or manhunt.  We have indoor movies and games. I like playing video games and I’m part of Learning Always.”

-Kaiser, age 6
