Community Programs

Throughout the off-season, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are active in a number of programs related to youth, education, healthy living, and positive relationships.

 Break the Silence on Violence against Women

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have partnered with the Manitoba government to Break the Silence on Violence against Women.

Over the next three years, players and staff will deliver more than 100 school-based educational workshops for high school students, football teams, coaching staff, and community leaders.

You Can Play

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have taken the You Can Play pledge in partnership with the You Can Play Project. The mission of this project is to ensure equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation. You Can Play works to guarantee that athletes are given a fair opportunity to compete and that they are judged by other athletes and fans only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success.

Hit the Books

The Bombers are dedicated to providing our littlest fans with the inspiration to “hit the books” and develop a commitment to their studies, specifically in regards to reading and writing. In 2015, players visited 36 schools across Manitoba in one month to read stories and engage with children during I Love to Read month.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers strive to be community leaders in Manitoba and are proud to recognize other individuals who make a positive impact of their own.
