Aboriginal R+R

Participants in the R+R Facilitator Training - October 2011

In October I had the great privilege of with working with Musqueam Nation to train almost 30 men and women to deliver the R+R Program to youth within their community. The first weekend was spent  assisting new facilitators gain a more comprehensive understanding of the overall curriculum values and core philosophy of the program as well as assisting teams in beginning their preparation for two youth weekends in beautiful Pemberton.

Both youth weekends were a wonderful opportunity for Musqueam youth and adults to gather as a community to talk about the impact of violence in their community as well as work together to come up with ways in which young people can find ways to stay safe, connect and foster a greater sense of what it means to have a healthy relationship with oneself, family members and as a larger community.

      Hello Kelly
      The Respectful Relationships (R+R) program is a violence prevention program for youth aged 12 to 18 years old, and is delivered by community-based adult facilitators in school classrooms. High school students are trained and mentored to co-facilitate the R+R workshops and to become leaders in youth violence prevention among their peers and younger students. It would be good to contact our Executive Director, Lynda Laushway: info@swova.org for more information. Thanks for your comment – Megan Manning (Administrator)
