MRC North is thrilled to announce that Grace Williams won a Fellowship to attend the prestigious 6 Degrees Citizen Space Conference in Toronto Canada, hosted by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship.
Born in Ghana in West Africa, Grace and her family emigrated to Launceston in 2005 with the support of MRC North through our Settlement Services Program. A current student of Law, Economics and Philosophy at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Grace was an active youth member of the Youth Advisory Group at MRC North, and remains dedicated to encouraging diversity and inclusion.
In addition to the fellowship, Grace also received a $2,000 grant to develop a training program for professionals in the mental health and disability sector to use assistance dogs for therapeutic purposes within Tasmanian communities.
The first course will be held in January 2017. For more information, visit Lead the Way at: www.ltw.com.au.
