Violence Prevention Project



The Violence Prevention Program examines different forms of gender based violence impacting youth, and explores how we can come together to address them as a community.


This program provides an informative and non-judgmental space for youth to collaborate, learn and share. The Violence Prevention Program is open to youth aged 14-19.


All genders are welcome, however we prioritize the registration of Two Spirit, Trans, Non-binary youth and girls. All workshops will be held on zoom due to current health guidelines.
