Toastmaster Hoping To Tackle Inuit Teen Suicides
The occurence of Inuit teen suicides is unfortunately quite high and this is definitely an issue that government agencies are trying to tackle. I'm currently in initial discussions with one such person at one of these agencies on possibly doing some talks up in the Arctic to motivate the Inuit teens to make better choices in life. The one block of course is the travel expenses. If a number of groups up north including schools, colleges and especially the local government up there, could band together to fund such a trip, I would be willing to go up north, say in Iqaluit, to do a few inspirational talks for free. This issue is important enough to do such a project. Of course, this possibility is due to the training I've had at Toastmasters.
