Without a strong connection to the community or the skills needed to live on their own, youth can struggle to develop independence. Yet, with the right guidance and support, kids can develop the skills they need to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing our youth with opportunities for growth through education and mentorship.
Education and mentorship are fundamental to empowering at-risk youth in the Regina community. Through our mentorship programs, aimed at youth ages 8-21, we support kids in going back to school, finding work, and planning their futures. Our goal is to develop a community of empowered youth equipped with the tools they need to succeed.
Additionally, our Cultural Liaison position provides an alternative route for at-risk youth that breaks the cycle of poverty. We do this through resource sharing, youth-centred practices and emphasizing opportunities for personal development. By providing cultural services to these youth, we have seen great success in their ability to develop a connection to their community, culture, identity and spirituality. By assisting youth in their journey of cultural identity, we elicit change, determination, leadership and compassion.
You know what they say, it takes a community to raise a child. This can be especially true when they've had a rough start in life. When you contribute to SCP’s Education & Mentorship programs, you are joining hands with others to raise these kids up and let them know they are not alone. With your donations, we can provide youth with the tools they need to make a positive impact on their lives, families and communities today and into the future! The key to success is staying motivated, and we believe that with the help of our community, we can help these kids do that.
Our Mentorship program aims to empower youth in our community by providing individual, group, and community-based mentoring, along with supportive guidance in developing independent living skills. Youth are paired with mentors based on compatibility, skills, abilities, gender, and personal interests to build an effective and trusting working relationship.
Youths (8-21) are referred to the Mentorship program through the Ministry of Social Services.
