Stornoway Diamonds is proud to support the following organizations:
Northern Youth Abroad
A program that seeks to foster cross-cultural awareness, individual career goals, and international citizenship in Northern youth. It enables youth aged 15 to 22 living in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories to acquire professional skills and training, hands on work experience, and high school credits through a cross cultural work and learning experience in southern Canada and abroad. They promote leadership development, healthy self-confidence and self-esteem by providing life-changing experiences. For more information go to www.nya.ca.
