2004-2005 Nova Scotia Aboriginal Athlete Role Model Program
MYRACL is now actively in the process of re-establishing a Provincial
Aboriginal Athlete Role Model Program, in partnership with our Mi'kmaw
communities in the effort to promote and educate youth across the Province's
Mi'kmaw communities through presentations in the Aboriginal school
We have been working to develop a strong partnership with the Aboriginal School
System through their Principal Network in an effort to develop a partnership that will
increase opportunity for school aged children and youth to participate in sport, recreation and
active living programs.
We have also been developing plans and finalizing the presentation package for
the Aboriginal Role Model Program with the selected Aboriginal Role Models and
hope to have this program up and running by January 2005.
We have incorporated some of the ideas that are included in the National
Aboriginal Role Model Program in conjunction with Sport Canada's Esteem Team but
have also added a few things that will make our program more traditionally
oriented to our region.
