We're delighted to report that the Victoria TELUS Community Board has provided us with a grant of $9,950 to run the Warrior Women program at our Norgaard Club in Central Saanich. Warrior Women is a fun and active program for Aboriginal girls ages 9 – 14 from the Tsawout, Tsartlip, Pauquachin, and Tse:cum First nations. Our project goals are to introduce participants to healthy lifestyle options, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, create positive body image in participants, encourage girls to build a positive cultural identity, and participants will learn about healthy relationships. All of our activities will include traditional Aboriginal teachings. There are active games and sports, arts and crafts, cooking, out trips, and community engagement. We provide transportation which removes participation barriers; access to nutritious snacks; and increase their exposure to physical activities. Thank you TELUS!
