Foundations For Life: Encouraging, Equipping, and Empowering Students

Dear Friends of Foundations For Life, Welcome to our Spring Newsletter!


As the season of renewal and growth blossoms around us, we're thrilled to share with you the latest updates and exciting opportunities from Foundations For Life. Please note that we have been unable to host a spring fundraiser this year, and we desperately need your donations to continue our work, which you will see described below.

Teacher’s Convention: We recently had the pleasure of participating in the Mighty Peace Teacher’s Convention on March 7-8, 2024. It was an enriching experience connecting with educators and sharing insights on fostering healthy relationships and providing essential, life-giving knowledge to K-12 students. We extend our gratitude to be part of the 165+ businesses and organizations who joined us at the event.

New Booking Calendar for Grade K-12 Students: Great news! Our booking calendar is now open for all K-12 school presentations. We're excited to announce that we're fully equipped to cater to high school students as well as elementary and junior high now that our educators have completed their training. Teachers, book your presentations now and let us empower your students together (Book us). Remember, our services are free within the City and County of Grande Prairie; we require financial support for trips to schools outside this area.

Golf Tournament: Save the date for our upcoming Golf Tournament on June 22, 2024, (a registration link will be available soon; at Events) at Morningview Park Golf Course. Join us for a day of sunshine with fun and fundraising as we strive to continue our mission of promoting healthy relationship fundamentals, abuse awareness and prevention, and nurturing children's well-being with critical knowledge of human development, dignity and value.

August 2024 Bottle Donation Drive for Foundations for Life: We are delighted to share that Foundations for Life has been selected as the beneficiary of Aquatera's Bottle Donation Program for August 2024. Your participation can make a significant impact on our work. Simply drop off your recyclable items, including bottles, at any of the following locations: Aquatera Eco Centre, Aquatera Landfill, or Recycle Plus I and Recycle Plus II bottle depots. Your generous contribution will directly support our initiatives. Drop your items in the designated Aquatera Bottle Donation Bin and carry on with your day, knowing that you've played a vital role in making a positive difference. Thank you for your support!

Education Outreach Update: Our dedicated educators have been making strides in various communities, spreading awareness and knowledge on crucial topics related to body value and safety. We're proud of their efforts and commitment to making a positive impact and have been privileged to present in various schools in City, County and Peace region since September 2023.

Fall Banquet: Save the date for our Fall banquet later this year, Oct.5, 2024. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting event filled with fellowship, fun, and opportunities to support our cause. Last year’s banquet was a big success and enjoyed by all, so we look forward to having you join us for the coming one in Fall 2024.

Volunteer Support: We need your help to continue making a difference, one particular need we have is for volunteers to assist us on our roadside clean-up day this spring, which gives us an opportunity to raise funds for the organization.
