The North West Company Partners with the Embrace Life Forum
Embrace Life Forum held by the Nishnawbe Aski Nation is about bringing together First Nations leadership, parents, individuals, organizations, churches and the wider Thunder Bay community in a large-scale effort to take positive action to address family crisis that affects so many of our First Nations today.
The North West Company has donated $4,200 for an Elders Honorarium and Elder Support over the two-day conference that took place in March 2013.
The conference included youth workshops that focus on the empowerment of students in terms of self-esteem, education pursuits and the benefits of healthy living. Workshops will also be held for parents with an emphasis on how to communicate effectively and encourage their children to succeed. Healthy cooking demonstrations will be held as well, in addition to a tradeshow promoting different career choices.
The NWC is pleased to support Embrace Life Forum and promote healthy living to the people we serve.
