First Nations’ students supported by new life skills programs

New programs that teach positive lifestyle choices and build resistance to high-risk behaviours are being delivered to children and youth at Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation and Maskwacis Cree Communities. The programs are supported by $3.96 million in Safe Communities grant funding from the Alberta government over 3 years.

“Regardless of cultural backgrounds, it is important to reinforce healthy choices and self-esteem in early childhood,” said Gene Zwozdesky, Alberta Minister of Health and Wellness.
