Purpose: This 24-month project will promote violence prevention by facilitating leadership skills development in 84 community workshops with 500 Aboriginal women. Extensive partnerships will be fostered to reach new communities in Labrador and northern communities. Workshop content will be molded into a universal framework to be implemented at the request of outside parties and stakeholders. A cultural sensitivity component will be developed and the project will also reach out to Aboriginal men. Five Aboriginal men will be trained as facilitators, which will give them an opportunity to impact their communities and participate actively in the fight to end violence.
