Once the specific criteria and number of participants have been determined, recruitment can take place. Projects may be tailored to any group composition. For example your project may have a specific focus on one of the following groups:
- Daughters of survivors
- Sons of survivors
- Grandchildren of survivors
- Mixed groups
- Educators working with descendants of survivors
Whatever the decided composition of the group, recruitment can take a variety of approaches. Posters can be distributed to local community organizations such as Friendship Centres, community centres, Aboriginal student centres, libraries, etc. Social media can also be a good way to find participants for your project.
