Purpose: This 14-month multi-phase project will apply a cultural foundation and design a framework that supports women as leaders in their Aboriginal communities. It is through comprehensive training that an overall community action plan will be developed, functioning as a guide to Aboriginal women through the various stages of leadership development and empowerment. As the project unfolds, participants will be led through a journey of cultural rediscovery and enhancement resulting in a rebirth of connection and leadership authority. The end result: powerful, educated women ready to make positive change in 26 communities through crime prevention and leadership initiatives. SUPPLEMENT: The supplement will allow the group to continue working on a framework for leadership, as well as start delivering the workshops in communities involved with NAWN. They will also be able to explore partnership opportunities with Aboriginal communities in Labrador.
