Ray Pidzamecky M.S.W. RSW says “Youth of today are the promise of the future and represent a tremendous untapped resource. They are energetic, positive and are extremely well positioned to support others in their peer groups. Through inexpensive and purposeful training, young people themselves can provide an effective and efficient resource to one another and support caregivers responsible for the well-being of today’s youth.” Contact Person: Raymond Pidzamecky (905) 466-0444 firstname.lastname@example.org Primary Goals: To create a youth-oriented programme which: 1) engages the participants in a First Nation’s culturally rich experience; 2) trains participants with valuable skills for supporting other youth; 3) exposes youth to the wisdom of the Elders who are valuable resources; 4) provides youth with supports for social issues faced within their community; 5) creates a long-term youth-oriented program providing non-athletic options. To create a program, which the community sees as a positive and supportive agenda, benefitting the community through the involvement of youth. To train the adult leadership for on-going training and support of the students in the program. To build a common or shared set of peer skills between Elders and youth.
