Reconciliation in Action

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.”
