Live Healthy, Live Well, Live Algoma


Detailed Description

"The story of the Live Algoma Initiative begins back in 2011 with a number of local manufacturers calling for better skilled workers. The closest technical college to offer training for these jobs was more than 45 miles away. What’s more, graduates of Algoma High School were moving to other communities in search of more education or employment opportunities with a plan of never returning. Algoma was experiencing a brain drain. Our manufacturing employers were facing a declining local economy that jeopardized the quality of life in our community. We needed to take action."
