Camp Ignite Mentorship Program

 

Camp Ignite is excited to announce we will be going ahead with a one day Mentorship program Aug 09, 2020. Given the limitations of the current COVID-19 pandemic the previous format of our program was unable to go ahead. The Justice Institute has enabled us to utilize their facility for the day to put on a condensed version for the grade 12 students who would otherwise miss out on the opportunity of attending Ignite. We will be following all guidelines by the provincial health director, have identified appropriate activities and limited our youth participant number to accommodate social distance proximities.

The camp is open to Grade 11 & 12 girls. Priority this year will be given to those in Grade 12 but any other applicants in grade 11 who are not successful will be held for next year. Any youth interested in applying can send applications to campignitebc@gmail.com and we will contact them with further details on this and other future opportunities.

We thank you all in advance for your continued support of Camp Ignite. Any new contact details for the school (name, email, phone, and address) can be sent to: saulnierk@dnv.org

Youth Leadership Advisory Board

YouthLAB is a Family Services North Shore initiative that was created to address mental health issues facing young people, from a youthled perspective. YouthLAB meets throughout the year to learn, discuss and create art around mental health topics affecting youth including anxiety, depression, trauma, healthy relationships and social justice issues. Each year we work towards an outreach project with a focus on engaging other youth on these topics, reducing stigma, and creating stronger communities.

Family Services of the North Shore offers an annual youth volunteer program. Youth Leadership Advisory Board (Youth-LAB) helps reach at-risk youth. Youth volunteers advise staff on new youth outreach strategies for the agency to decrease barriers for youth accessing help and/or counselling services. A new group of youth volunteers is selected every spring for a September start. The Youth-LAB program is open to 15 – 18 year old North Shore high school students interested in mental health and it runs September to June.

The application deadline is July 3 as we hope to interview through the summer and notify people by September 1st.  Hours can be used for Work Experience if you are taking it next year.

Please contact Ms. Bramley if you have any questions.
