It takes the collaboration of a community to raise healthy, happy and well-adjusted children. Raising a family can be costly, sometimes financial situations can make providing essentials difficult and additional extra-curricular activities impossible. The LiUNA Local 1611 “Empowering Youth Project” was launched in 2018 to address these issues. Our initiatives identify where a community is needing assistance and we look at how LiUNA Local 1611 can ease the burden.
Our goal is to assist communities around the Province to ensure that all children are being afforded the opportunities to develop, learn and thrive.
EDUCATION… TURNING THE PAGES TO OPPORTUNITY
Years of budget cuts to public school funding have left classrooms without new and up-to-date reading material. As part of our Empowering Youth Project, LiUNA Local 1611 has donated thousands of dollars in ‘wish list’ literature to numerous schools around the Province. Hundreds of the latest and most desired book titles are now in classrooms around the Province as part of our initiative.
