Programs: North End · St. John's
HEROS works directly with the Winnipeg School District and in an effort to identify local schools in the geographic area(s) of greatest need where socio-economic factors such as poverty are an issue. In the case of Winnipeg this area is the North End.
The Winnipeg girls and boys have been selected from the following North End and inner city schools: Marymound, Nijimakwa, William Whyte, Samuel de Champlain and River Elm. Since 2009, HEROS has worked with over 108 girls and boys in the North End.
HEROS has partnered with Resiliency Initiatives Canada to collect data including socio-economic information and how the children were developing as a result of our programming.
Socio-economic data collected indicates the following:
Location: Pioneer Arena
Address: 799 Logan Avenue
Time: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
Dates: October 6, 2011 – December 22, 2011

HEROS is an exemplary model when it comes to youth enrichment and grassroots hockey programming in Canada. We are a proud supporter, and commend their enduring commitment to providing hockey opportunities for children in Winnipeg.
