Aboriginal Youth Opportunities! (AYO!) is happy to partner with the 595 Prevention Team on an upcoming ARROWS Youth Engagement Workshop . This is a great opportunity for those of you that work with youth, particularly Aboriginal youth to learn about how AYO uses relationship based youth engagement to drive the volunteer machine of youth leadership in Winnipeg’s North End. Please note that we only have 20 spots available in each session.
ARROWS: This session is designed to educate and equip you with the ability to better engage with urban Aboriginal youth. This training is developed by urban Aboriginal youth for anyone who needs to work with us. It will explain some of the challenges we face and provide a variety of activities that give insight into the reasons why youth behave the way
they do. We will share some information about integrity and relationships and how they are integral to engagement. We will also learn about real issues, like secondary effects of colonization, poverty and FASD. This information will help you better understand the meaning of ARROWS. The point of this strategy is to get young people to find and share their gifts with their community.
