We hope Policy and Decision makers are motivated to replicate practices and lessons learned here
and work to inspire support for physical activity programs for children and youth.
We want you to feel inspired and motivated to generate buy-in in your community and replicate and innovate from the stories shared in our reports and SlideShare. http://www.slideshare.net/Aboriginal_Phys_Activity/introduction-14817838
There are three different week-long programs that focus on healing and developing leadership abilities among youth. The leadership development program empowers youth to bring Hip Hop activities back into their communities.
At the time of program inception in 2006, BP4L founder and director Stephen Leafloor was a full time social worker (MSW) with over 25 years of experience as a social worker (MSW) in the areas of probation, wilderness programs, residential group homes, child protection, community outreach, and street work with youth at risk. An active dancer/participant in the Hip Hop culture since 1982 and founder of the Canadian Floor Masters, Stephen completed his Master’s thesis on Hip Hop culture and its importance for educators and social workers.
A video produced by NAHO, features Clyde River, Nunavut which runs a Hip Hop program inspired by BluePrintForLife and the youth of the community.
