Metis Life Skills Journey Program

 ages 7-10 ~ August 14 - 25, 2017

 ages 11-14 ~ July 31 - August 11, 2017

The Life Skills Journey program is a community-led life skills training program that will help youth learn skills to decrease substance abuse and bullying. The program was developed by a Buffalo Lake Métis Settlement advisory committee and University of Alberta partners.

The goal of the life skills training program is to increase drug-resistance, self-management, and social skills among youth by teaching children about self esteem, communication, and respect for differences. We will also teach children how to be positive community members and kin, how to say no to peer pressure, skills to stand up to bullies, and strategies to deal with grief in a healthy way.
