On the Move Workshops - EVENT CLOSED

Call for Host Communities Deadline: December 11, 2009 - CLOSED

On the Move is CAAWS' national initiative to increase opportunities for inactive girls and young women (ages 9-18) to participate in sport and physical activity. On the Move Workshops are half-day, interactive, issue-based sessions that provide an overview of the initiative, share best practices from across Canada, and provide "how-to" tips to increase the participation of girls and young women.

Appropriate for everyone from practitioners to policy makers, the workshops also provide an opportunity for participants to network and discuss collaboration and local action to make a difference in the lives of girls and young women in their community. Aboriginal communities interested in an On the Move workshop that highlights CAAWS’ Team Spirit: Aboriginal Girls in Sport and Aboriginal Girls On the Move projects are also encouraged to apply.

With support from the Public Health Agency of Canada, CAAWS will deliver a number of On the Move workshops across Canada from January to March 2010.

If you are interested in co-hosting an On the Move workshop in your community visit http://caaws.ca/onthemove/e/workshops/index.htm  to download information about submitting a Letter of Interest.
