"MANITOBA A.L.I.V.E. CREATES OPPORTUNITIES AND SKILLS FOR YOUTH TO DEVELOP THEIR POTENTIAL AS VOLUNTEERS AND LEADERS IN THEIR COMMUNITIES."
“Participating in the program as a Grade 11 student was one of the highlights of my time in high school. Surrounded by like-minded people, I was provided with the opportunity to learn from my peers and pass along the personal gifts that I possess.”

“It is truly amazing how 72 hours can completely change one’s outlook on life but at Manitoba ALIVE, it happens. I know that I left the program as a different girl than when I entered it three days prior. One of my favourite parts of returning to the program each year as a counsellor is the ability to witness others experiencing the same feelings and insights that I did.”

“I have been an inner city teacher and counsellor in Winnipeg, working with youth for the past 25 years. For the past 12 years I having annually selected and sent 4-6 students to the caring organizers and facilitators at MB ALIVE. This conference is one of the highlights of my year, because I see intensive work with my students that consistently results in an increase in their confidence, their sense of self-worth, and their belief that they are more similar than different to other youth who come from different circumstances.”
