The Honouring Life Network Hosts the Kids Help Phone Staff

The Honouring Life Network and NAHO were proud to host a team of dedicated staff from the Kids Help Phone on Thursday October 14, 2010 for a workshop focusing on cultural competency within First Nations, Inuit and Métis populations, and communities.

Recently, Kids Help Phone received an Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion Healthy Communities Grant with which they are undertaking professional development initiatives and training in order to provide a greater level of service to the many First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth whom they serve. 

Presentations were made by a member of each population specific centre of NAHO:

  • First Nations Centre
  • Inuit Tuttarvingat
  • Métis Centre
  • Communications Unit
  • Aboriginal Relations and Initiatives Unit

The day was a huge success, and the HLN and NAHO are thankful for the opportunity to contribute to such a great organization like the Kids Help Phone!
