In 2006, Momenta was founded by Lise and Sara to meet a need in Manitoba to provide year-round, accessible therapeutic adventure programming that meets best practice and is research-based. We design programs that incorporate our core values, themes from the participants’ daily lives and agency-defined therapeutic goals and aspirations for their groups. This includes, but is not limited to: leadership development, character building, positive peer relationships, group cohesion, and coping strategies.
We teach to and lead by our values in Treaty One Territory, ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Ojibwe-Cree, Dakota, Dene and homeland of the Metis Nation;
- Have Fun: We are engaging, we are adventurous, we are passionate
- Take Care of Each Other: We are approachable, we are mentors, we are a community
- Be Respectful: We are inclusive, we lead with humility, we are strengths-focused
- Commitment: We are purposeful, we are authentic, we are accountable
- Be Safe: We are professional, we are guided by best practice, we have good judgment
Momenta integrates a strength based perspective, TRC calls to action, and radical inclusion in all aspects of work done.
