Street Culture Project
Transforming the lives of Regina Youth at risk of homelessness
by giving them a second chance to rebuild their lives and achieve their full potential for a successful & sustainable future.
“I would never have made it this far without you.”
When a Youth is in crisis, they need someone to turn to that they can trust. But what do you do when the people you should be able to count on are really putting you at risk?
Street Culture Project’s 15 bed Youth Emergency Shelter, Tuhk Sih Nowin, provides short-term supportive accommodation for 16 and 18 year-olds in emergency-crisis situations. This voluntary service provides a safe and secure environment when youth need it most.
The Shelter ensures that all basic physical AND social needs are met so that at-risk Youth can get out of crisis mode and begin to rebuild their lives, one day at a time.
When you contribute to our Youth Shelter, your donation provides youth at greatest risk with food, shelter, clothing, connections, opportunities, dignity and so much more.
Without your help these young people are at great risk to become yet another statistic, but together we can make sure that doesn’t happen. By choosing to support our Youth Shelter, you are empowering kids to feel safe, to make healthy choices and most importantly, to feel hopeful about creating a brighter future.
Together, we can make a difference. It’s up to you to decide what difference you want to make.
“This is the only place that’s ever felt like a real home to me.”
Imagine not having a warm bed to sleep in, feeling unsafe in your own home, or not knowing where your next meal will come from.
Street Culture Project provides safe housing through the Ministry of Social Services to vulnerable youth in need. Currently we are successfully operating 4 homes with a total of 19 spaces.
We work with the Youth living in these homes to develop goals, create strong support systems to help them along their way and provide actionable tools they can use to work towards making their dreams a reality. We believe that when you empower Youth to take personal responsibility for their goals, and you provide the right support, that they can achieve great things.
The sky’s the limit!
When you donate to our Housing project you are supporting Youth on their way to becoming happy, healthy adults. These kids are ready to create a better future for themselves, but they need all the help you can give.
Your donation ensures these kids have a safe place to call their own. Somewhere they can feel included and welcome so they can prepare for their future. Every child deserves to feel like they matter; like what they want out of life is achievable. Your donation helps make a world of difference when you contribute to Housing at Street Culture Project.
“This place has helped me get my life together.”
For Youth to achieve their employment goals, they need supported opportunities to participate in the workforce. Our employment programs connect young adults (ages 15-19) with life skills and hands-on employment experience. We mentor and guide them through experiences that prepare them for working life including general workplace expectations, applicable workplace training, etiquette and employment preparation.
Youth can then connect with placement employers for opportunities to get real-life work experience.
When you choose to donate to our employment programs, you are directly impacting the employability of Youth in the Regina community. For Youth to be able to gain independence and work towards their goals, regular employment is so important.
Remember the employer who gave you your first opportunity? If it wasn’t for them, would you be where you are today? Now it’s your chance to pay it forward. Donate today.
Education & Mentorship
“My mentor tells me I’ve done it all myself but I don’t think I could have accomplished as much without the help of Street Culture and their programs.”
Education and mentorship are fundamental to empowering Youth in the Regina community. Through these programs aimed at Youth ages 8-21, we support kids in going back to school, finding work, and planning their future. Without a strong connection to community, or the skills needed to live on their own, Youth struggle to develop independence. Yet with the right guidance and support, kids can develop the skills to reach their full potential.
Additionally, our Cultural Liaison position provides an alternative route that breaks the poverty cycle through resource sharing, Youth-centred practices and emphasizing opportunities for personal development. By delivering cultural services to participants, we have seen success in their ability to develop community connection, culture, identity and spirituality. By assisting Youth in their journey of cultural identity, we elicit change, determination, leadership and compassion.
It really does take a community to raise a child, especially when they had a rough start in life.
When you donate to Street Culture Project’s Education & Mentorship programs, you are joining hands with others to raise these kids up and let them know they are not alone.
You are helping build a community around them so that they can stay on track and reach their goals.
We are closing the gap between Youth in crisis and independent living.
Our mission is to empower vulnerable Youth through mentorship, daily structure and access to personal growth & development & provide them with social, cultural and economic opportunities that they may not otherwise have had.
Every child deserves a roof overhead that truly feels like a welcoming family home.
