This report summarizes my practicum experience at Aatse Davie School in Fort Ware, British Columbia, on the traditional territory of the Kwadacha Nation. This K-12 school is located in one of the most remote areas in British Columbia and has approximately 100 students. I expanded and developed senior and junior boys’ groups, while also exploring program development as a social worker in a remote school location. My practicum firstly introduced electronics to these students as part of a STEM extracurricular activity and secondly explored areas of Indigenous masculinity. This report explores my practicum goals, accomplishments, and learnings, and then concludes with suggestions for future social workers and contributions to social work practice which emerged from my learning as part of my practicum experience.
