The GWAC Monthly Meeting on Monday (7:00pm in the Learning Resources Centre beneath Britannia Library) is on Reconciliation in Action and will introduce a Collective Impact Place-Based Strategy by Our Place and Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement (ALIVE).
“Our Place is a collaboration of residents, community organizations, local businesses & community leaders in Vancouver. Their/our vision is for the East Side to be a place where all children and families can thrive.
Success in life depends on a good start and research shows that children who start behind, stay behind. Our Place is committed to ensuring that Urban Indigenous Children will succeed in school & in life.
More than any single influence on a child or community, it is the confluence of all the enabling forces that truly fosters healthier kids & serves as a catalyst for positive community empowerment.
Come to learn more about the program and how GW residents can partner and support this program.”
