The purpose of the project is to work towards the improvement of economic prosperity and healthy lifestyles for First Nations, Metis and Multi-barrier young women.
The plan…from these sessions the young women will plan, develop and implement and deliver an awareness campaign promoting economic prosperity for young women and create and promote positive changes on how community views and reacts to barriers that this age and gender group face on a daily basis in order to gain economic prosperity.
Definition of Empowerment
Empowerment can have a variety of meanings, but it mainly means the increase of the spiritual, economic, social, and strength of a person or group of persons.
- Reduce the stigma and challenges around young women’s issues that you encounter today
- Outcomes of the group discussions will lead to you helping build an Awareness Campaign
- The Campaigns will be used to promote positive change by young women, for young women
The project is lead cooperatively with community through a voluntary panel of community representatives from all scopes of community agencies and business members along with Women who offer a lived experience background to contribute to the direction of the project. This project truly is community driven and lead!
