Take Pride Manitoba Project
The Take Pride Manitoba Project involves taking some successful Take Pride Winnipeg! programs and expanding them outside Winnipeg, to other communities in Manitoba. A huge thank you goes out to Green Manitoba for providing funding towards this project.

Take Pride-Take Action presentations have expanded outside Winnipeg as well, with over 70 presentations at over 20 schools outside Winnipeg so far in the 2016-2017 school year.
