What an exciting month ahead for Halifax youth participants of North End Community Health Centre’s “Hope Blooms” initiative. On Friday, April 26th seven Hope Blooms youth will be traveling to Toronto for the filming of an official business pitch to CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den.
The pitch is being made in the hopes of expanding the Hope Blooms Fresh Herb Salad Dressing — a youth social enterprise — by gaining marketing expertise and funds for equipment and upkeep. The team has been hard at work preparing for their big day and all of the youth are very excited and looking forward to this new experience. Please join the Nova Scotia Federation of Community Health Centres in wishing the seven youth safe travels and best of luck. The youth are: Craig Cain, Tiffany Calvin, Christiana Hubley, Folayemi Kolawole-Boboye, Kolade Kolawole-Boboye, Bocar Wade and Mamadou Wade. Their adult mentors from the North End CHC are: Jessie Jollymore, Sarina Piercy, Rose Hubley and Jil Martin.
