Feature Story: Bringing Bullying & Harassment Prevention Education to SK Rural Communities

The goal of this project is to host five Youth Symposiums to train 140 youth from various communities in Saskatchewan as Youth Facilitators of Red Cross bullying prevention and healthy youth relationships programs. Youth aged 11 to 16 are the focus for this two-day school-based training. Once trained, these youth host workshops, facilitate presentations, and organize school and community-wide activities that model healthy behaviours, promote healthy relationships and equip their peers with skills in communication, conflict resolution, and how to safely intervene to stop bullying when they see it happening.
