In addition to the priorities set out by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, the Bridges Worker reaches out to communities, attending community events and helping coordinate kids' activities to include culture.
Attending cultural activities is a great way to get to know everyone and provide opportunities to the children as a follow-up to requests made by guardianship workers. The program will work with the ministry to reconnect children with their families and community.
During the planning meeting, those involved in the program have listed a number of activities that they may want to participate in for the future, these include:
Genograms, family finding, cultural planning, inclusion of children in cultural events, family visits during cultural events, and connecting children with mentors.
