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.
