Northern Youth Councils Project is a joint venture between the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre and Healthy Child Manitoba to reduce adolescent pregnancy in Northern Manitoba. In order to achieve this, alternative programming designed by youth is offered. Attendance has been very good, with a number of youth being very committed to their involvement in the project. Activities range from the “Baby Think it Over” program, presentations on pregnancy prevention, living a healthy lifestyle, and many more topics. In addition to the above mentioned activities, they also participate in the planning of youth dances, wilderness weekends, movie nights, gym nights, various workshops selected by the youth, guest speakers, etc. For further information please contact the Northern Youth Council Coordinator at 204-677-0988.
