Community Development Programming

 

What is the Community Development Program? 

The Community Development Program was designed to support Sport, Recreation and Culture in the communities, aim better our relationships within recreation leaders, volunteers and community champions, and we hope to be the bridge between communities and Territorial Sport Organizations.  

We want to focus on developing programs based on community interests, strengths and desires. We will strive to help communities build capacity in activities they find beneficial. ASCNWT will achieve this by:

  • Create partnerships with all TSOs and help them get into the communities to better develop all levels of sport;
  • Provide support to Indigenous coaches and athletes to compete at all levels;
  • Work with recreation leaders, volunteers and community champions to get a better sense of what support is needed in their communities and help them build capacity and programming;
  • Continue to organize and develop Northern Games NT, Dene Games NT and Archery NT
