The Niigaan Club staff are located in District I, District II (East Lake), District IIA (Isle), and District III. Coordinators carry out daily operations and programming for each district and ensure that the program serves the communities effectively. Each coordinator supervises the Nigaan specialists who work under him or her. Any questions, comments or concerns about specific activities of the program should be directed to the respective coordinator.
