MWONL offers programs that enhance healthy lifestyle and wellness programs. We provide services that encourage mobility and design interactive hands on classes that teach our participants about healthy nutrition.
We work closely with professional resource people such as registered dieticians and certified yoga instructors who can effectively encourage our group to lead a more healthy lifestyle at any age!
MWONL understands the benefits of expressing oneself through arts and crafts. Not only does it encourage creativity, many of our participants discover a hidden skill or talent that could contribute to their overall well-being. Some have even taken their talents to build entrepreneurial opportunities. Currently we are offering art classes for children and youth, and for adults only. All events are posted on our Facebook page for registration (which are free of charge).
Our Empowerment through English Conversation Classes help the women and their families in a variety of ways applicable to everyday life. These monthly sessions enhance decision making, raising their self-esteem and preparing them to engage in a many real life scenarios . In addition, it helps empower and engage them more in community activities. Women gain skills to engage in useful activities, raise their confidence level, learn to be economically independent and learn to take on more responsibilities.
We try to accommodate women from all sorts of situations by providing childminding and transportation on a need to need basis. Our classes are taught by volunteer instructors and sometimes participants who want to share their culture and lifestyle.
TCCA Training is designed for human services providers of non-profit, business and government organizations including health care, academic institutions, women’s centers, daycare workers, social workers, anti-violence workers, law and enforcement, department of justice and others working in an increasingly culturally diverse environment in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The materials and resources for the training were designed by immigrants from an immigrant perspective. Our Goal is to enable the human service providers to be better equipped in serving the various ethnic, religious, and linguistic groups to develop awareness of diversity, thus helping them to offer more effective services to the immigrant population of our province
Fees: Full/half day workshops are offered (group of 10 or more preferred).
