The Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities is launching an expansion of our successful Mind and Spirit Youth Leadership (MSYL) program into the Orton Park community. The MSYL program is a youth led group dedicated to bringing youth ages 13-19 together to plan and implement community health programs. In this new expansion of the MSYL program, we are hoping to work alongside youth in community leadership, engagement and development with a restorative justice lens. Youth participants will be able to identify issues that cause harm, discuss strategies to cope and manage conflicts, understand accountability, and actively participate in resolutions. Notably, we will also be providing youth with workshops and training opportunities such as First Aid CPR, safe food handling, and much more.
If you know any youth living in the Orton Park community that may be interested in this type of program where participants learn about leadership, social change, and social justice then please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-642-9445 ext 4021, and I can send them the registration link from there.
