Tuhk Sih Nowin | Youth Shelter in Regina

The 15 bed gender-inclusive emergency shelter, funded through the Ministry of Social Services (MSS), serves youth between the ages of 16-17. SCP’s Youth Emergency Shelter is a voluntary, youth-centered service intended to provide short term, supportive accommodation on an emergency-crisis intervention basis to at-risk youth.
SCP’s Youth Emergency Shelter fosters a safe and supportive environment where youth can not only meet their basic physical needs (e.g. food, warmth, clothing, shelter, hygiene), but also address their social needs to effectively make positive changes in their lives.

WHAM | Youth Mentorship

Young adults (15-29) are referred to the WHAM program through community agencies or by personal interest.

Workplace Help and Mentoring

Workplace Help and Mentoring (WHAM) is an employment program designed to connect young adults—ages 15-29—who are looking for job opportunities by providing them with life skills and hands-on employment experience. The goal of the program is to prepare them for the workforce by fostering mentoring relationships and exposing them to the daily routines of paid employment; thus, helping to remove many of the barriers they encounter. This program dovetails our Construction Services and Yard Care Teams.

Peer Homes in Regina, Saskatchewan

Pit Stop Day Program

Street Culture’s day program, Pit Stop, is a transitional program for youth ages 15-18 aimed to support youth in acquiring valuable skills to build success in education, employment, and independent housing. The Pit Stop program offers youth an opportunity to learn about themselves, acquire valuable life skills, gain work experience, and engage in pro-social activities.
Pit is based on the four areas of resilience in the Circle of Courage: Mastery, Generosity, Independence & Belonging. The Pit Stop program is not meant to be a school substitute, but rather support for eventual transition back into education and/or employment.

Cultural Programming in Regina, Saskatchewan

In 2015, Street Culture developed a Cultural Liaison position within the agency. The creation of this position has improved our ability to serve youth of all nations tenfold. Street Culture 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. We connect with already established services and agencies in Saskatchewan to provide the best level of support. Street Culture’s Cultural Liaison works with knowledge keepers to discuss the impact of residential schools and intergenerational trauma with participants. They also provide an introduction to Indigenous culture, ceremonies and activities such as Pow Wow, medicine wheel teachings, naming ceremonies, colours, four directions, four sacred medicines and Treaties. Some programs our Cultural Liaison facilitates include beading, Cree games, medicine wheel activities, round dances, and Indigenous arts and crafts. Additionally, they facilitate support groups based on traditional teachings on mediation, reconciliation and circle checks. Street Culture youth also have the opportunity to attend monthly Sweat Lodge Ceremony’s at Kawakatoose First Nation with Elders. All cultural programming strives to follow appropriate protocol identified by Elders and community members.

Nurse Barb | Regina Community Nurse

She practices a relationship and wraparound-based approach to health care for our youth. Many of our youth will not go out of their way to go to a clinic or may feel very uncomfortable doing so.

Additionally, it is hard to share very private issues with a doctor that may not have the time to offer the attention and trust youth require. Nurse Barb builds caring and trusting relationships with the youth she serves and brings much needed health services and education to our community.

*Appointments and walk-in’s welcome.
*We offer basic health care services; no narcotic prescriptions.

Stay tuned for updates and news from Nurse Barb’s work with at risk youth here in Regina, Saskatchewan.

In the Community

From the Community

Serving this Community for over 20 years, Street Culture Project has developed a large and varied programming schedule, aimed around the unifying purpose of keeping our children safe, happy, healthy, and growing into the bright futures that should be the birth right of every child in this city. Together, with the support of so many others, we’ve managed to protect, comfort, heal, nurture, enterain, and support hundreds of Regina’s at risk youth. We’ve watched an entire generation of kids grow into succesful and fullfilled adults. Have a look at some of the programs we’ve been running to realise that gift, and please consider supporting your favourite program. Help us raise the next 20 years worth of bright shining stars here in the Queen City. It feels pretty great.
