We are delighted to share news of recent funding from #SaltSpringIslandFoundation in the amount of $26,250! Funds will be used to update and re-redesign the award-winning #RespectfulRelationshipsProgram which has served more than 10,000 youth across the Southern Gulf Islands over 17 years. The Program teaches youth to choose nonviolent behaviors; foster safe, stable, nurturing relationships between young people and caring adults in their community; develop and implement school-wide activities and policies to foster social connectedness and a positive social environment; and change societal norms about the acceptability of violence and willingness to intervene. Our deep gratitude to SSI Foundation for their support of this vital community program!
Each year SSI Foundation measures community needs to identify areas requiring attention. Read this year’s helpful and informative report here:
