Vancouver, BC | On November 5th at 6:30pm, join the Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement (ALIVE) Society and learn about Motivate Canada’s GEN7 initiative while enjoying the creativity of chef Makoto Ono and the PiDGiN kitchen, recently named one of the top restaurants in the country by enRoute magazine. Building new relationships is a key part of the GEN7 program, an initiative which trains and supports Aboriginal youth leaders to “hunt in both worlds”, as advocated by the late Chief Dan George. The Vancouver program began in 2012 when ALIVE partnered with the respected national youth organization Motivate Canada (MC), the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre, the Vancouver Park Board, and the First Nations Employment Society (FNES) to implement a plan to train Aboriginal youth (16-24) in leadership skills, and anchor them in five selected community centres to act as role models. Each $5000.00 raised provides one more urban Aboriginal youth the ability to participate in this unique opportunity. Get all the details after the jump.

The Gen7 event is $100 per person and includes canapés and cocktails with guests receiving a $50 tax receipt upon arrival. Tickets can be purchased at growinggen7.eventbrite.ca. For more information visit,http://www.motivatecanada.ca/en/gen7.
