A local initiative aims to help troubled males be the men they want to be.
This from facilitator Ness Benamran with the Transitions for Men pre-employment program based in Nelson.
It’s all about helping men – who have lived through trauma, violence or abuse – to get back on track.
The free six week program is a joint project of Nelson Community Services Centre and Kootenay Career Development Society with funding from the provincial and federal government.
The Nelson program has future plans to expand to other West Kootenay communities.
