Sign for Art

FortWhyte’s diverse, natural setting provides a 640-acre outdoor laboratory where close to 30,000 students a year discover and learn about nature and their own important role in sustaining it for the future. FortWhyte’s education programs engage students and educators from all areas of Winnipeg as well as outlying communities. Educational program themes include current environmental issues (such as climate change, forestry, water, soil conservation), wilderness appreciation and survival, Manitoba’s cultural heritage, Inuit and Aboriginal peoples programming, and more.
Boeing Winnipeg has developed a new partnership with the Siloam Mission working with a program called MOST (Mission: Off the Street Team). In November 2006, the Mission partnered with the Downtown BIZ to develop MOST, an innovative inner-city training and employment program for Winnipeg’s less fortunate. Participants earn minimum wage as they work on downtown beautification projects, including collecting debris and litter, removing graffiti, sweeping streets and shoveling snow. As a result, local businesses are hiring a growing number of MOST participants.
