NNAPF’S TRAINING CONFERENCES
From the National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation, Strategic Plan, June 2003 ...
Annual Training Institutes and idea exchange Forums will be hosted annually by NNAPF. These institutes will not only provide formal Training but will serve as venues for the sharing of ideas, consulting and securing input into program renewal Plan.
MISSION OF NNAPF
Building on the national Review of NNADAP in 1998, and other Regional and individual studies, our challenge is to advocate, develop, facilitate, and monitor strategies designed to continuously upgrade and enhance the quality of ideas, information, program methodologies, financial allocations and skills of service providers comprising the program.
In its short form
The National Native Addictions Foundation is committed to promoting a capacity building strategy to renew NNADAP.
Created in January 2000, the National Native Partnership Foundation Inc. is the National Voice for Aboriginal Addictions issues.
Members of NNAPF’S National and regional network consider Community empowerment as the key to sustainable, long term healing and NNAPF’s structure, representation and mandate ensures that community needs and solutions in the area of wellness and addictions are tabled at regional, provincial, territorial and federal levels.
To serve our Vision and Mission, our efforts are focused on the building of a strong and cohesive network of Aboriginal Health and Addictions Specialists – traditional Healers, paraprofessionals and professionals – and in forging and maintaining partnerships at local, regional, provincial, territorial and federal level.
NNAPF’s efforts are also dedicated to the development and maintenance of a qualified Aboriginal workforce involved in the field of Aboriginal Wellness and Addictions and the recognition of its existing, unique expertise and experience.
We strongly believe in our role as a catalyst for change and believe this change is facilitated by the opportunities our conference offers us to listen to your concerns, your successes, your challenges, hopes and dreams.
