The Aboriginal Communities: Active for Life resource and accompanying full-day workshop were created with guidance from Aboriginal leaders throughout the country, with the purpose of inspiring community leaders looking for culturally tailored resources that act as a vehicle toward individual and community holistic development.
The resource and workshop supports these individual champions as they embark on a journey to develop sustainable quality sport and physical activity programs, build collaborative relationships, and re-engage their community members into active and healthy lifestyles. The resource provides participants with:
- An understanding of the importance of physical activity, and an introduction to the concept of physical literacy, which is the development of movement skills, confidence to participate, and motivation and enjoyment to be Active for Life!
- A feeling of empowerment to support and deliver quality sport and physical literacy enriched programs in their communities
- Tools, resources, and action plans to help get their communities more active
