On November 5th, 2013, PIDGIN Restaurant is pleased to host a fundraiser for young Aboriginal Leaders from Motivate Canada’s GEN7 initiative. Enjoy the creativity of Chef Makoto Ono while you learn about this Place-Based approach to youth leadership and reconciliation.
Each $5,000 raised provides one urban Aboriginal youth with the training to become a community Messenger and role model within one of Vancouver's 23 community centres.
This fundraiser is the collaboration of ALIVE, Our Place, the Vancouver Inner City Community Foundation, Ray-Cam Centre, and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. These groups have joined forces to create greater opportunities for Aboriginal youth to participate and be successful within the multi-cultural neighbourhoods where they live, and to follow the advice of the late Chief Dan George by learning “to hunt in both worlds.”
Be part of this community effort so that Aboriginal Youth :
- Receive training utilizing the GEN7 Aboriginal Role Model Program delivered through Motivate Canada – a national, non-profit organization with a long and successful history of working with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth.
- Are connected as a GEN7 Messenger and role model to a Community Recreation Centre, reaching out to non-participating Aboriginal youth, while providing recreation and cultural programs for all youth in the community.
