Right To Play: PLAY Program in Pine Creek First Nation (Video)
Video, 9.5 minutes.
Athlete Ambassador Sami Jo Small visited Pine Creek First Nation with Right To Play in January 2014. The purpose of the three-time Olympian’s visit was to run on-ice sessions, meet and interact with the youth and adults in the community, and witness the positive impact PLAY is having in Pine Creek since its inception in May 2013. This video shows some of the many activities that took place during her visit.
The PLAY Program works with 54 First Nations and urban Aboriginal organizations in Ontario and two First Nations in Manitoba and is aiming to continue its successful expansion into other communities.
Right To Play’s Promoting Life-skills in Aboriginal Youth (PLAY) Program aims to limit the challenges and build on the strengths of Aboriginal youth and their communities, while supporting the value of culture and identity.
