Congratulations to the 24 youth who’ve graduated from the Future Is Yours Program!
June 26, 2015
June 25, 2015 was a memorable day for 24 Aboriginal youth who’ve graduated from Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre’s Future Is Yours program. The event took place at Ma Mawi’s 445 King Street location, where proud family members and friends came together in support of the graduates to celebrate their gifts, talents and achievements. Youth also had the opportunity to share their inspiring stories to all of the guests.
The Future Is Yours program is open to Aboriginal youth between the ages of 15 to 21 who are looking to gain valuable employability skills, volunteer experience, training and mentorship to improve their employment potential! The program also incorporates a variety of personal development and Aboriginal cultural awareness opportunities, as well prepares youth for City of Winnipeg and Province of Manitoba summer employment.
