|About||The program has been designed to provide a wide range of culturally appropriate activities for urban Aboriginal youth ages 13-18|
The activities will be designed to meet the needs of youth. An important aspect of the Wasa-Nabin Youth Program is that it offers a personalized plan of action and individual support for the registered clients. This separates the Wasa-Nabin Youth Program from many other services provided.
General Social Supports: The Wasa-Nabin Youth Program will assist youth in gaining positive social supports by providing access to healthy and safe activities that promote peer support and life skill training.
Youth in Care: Program activities incorporate Aboriginal culture and are available to youth in care who may not have access to culturally appropriate activities.
Healthy Eating and Physical Development: The Wasa-Nabin provides youth with the opportunity to make healthy meals, education on nutrition, and a safe environment to participate in physical activities.
Education: Youth will receive support in homework and attendance. The program will develop activities toward peers and authorities.
Justice Interventions: The program will provide support to court involved youth. To provide support the OFIFC has developed an approach known as "Streetwolf- The Seven Principles of Leadership" that will be based on the Seven Grandfather Teaching's/
Addressing Violence: Violence in communities and families affects many Aboriginal youth; to address this issue the Wasa-Nabin Youth Program will provide programming on positive roles, relationships, self-esteem, etc.
