Our Kids Count empowers individuals to build stronger families and inclusive communities by enhancing people’s lives through personal growth and development.Leadership Thunder Bay CAP team will work with young parents (21 years and younger), to produce a video that shares young parents experiences as competent parents who are capable of raising healthy children who develop to their full potential. The team will be engaged to first learn about the trials and tribulations of being a young parent and then find ways to partner with the young parents to showcase their strengths and abilities. The underlying goal of the project is to fight the stigma attached to being a “young parent”.
