Bullying Prevention & Promotion of Healthy Youth Relationships

Beyond the HurtThe Red Cross Beyond the Hurt bullying prevention program (Grades 5 and up) or Healthy Youth Relationships program (Grade 7 and up) can assist you with cultivating safe and healthy spaces for your students. Whether you want to build capacity with your school or division at the teacher or counsellor level as Adult Instructors, or are interested in having students certified through our peer facilitation model as Youth Facilitators, we can help you build your team of prevention champions.
 
  • Peer-to-Peer Youth Facilitation Model
    • This school-based, two-day training equips students in Grades 5 and up with the skills to deliver Beyond the Hurt or Healthy Youth Relationships education workshops to their peers as Youth Facilitators.
  • Adult-to-Youth Facilitation Model
    • An excellent way to build capacity at the school and community level, Adult Instructors (teachers, counsellors or support workers) are certified through a one-day training and can then directly deliver Beyond the Hurt and Healthy Youth Relationships content to youth in their school and community, as well as train and support groups of Youth Facilitators from year to year.

Red Cross Roughrider Presentations Presented by AGT Foods

Roughrider player and youthsEach year, the Canadian Red Cross in Saskatchewan trains a handful of Saskatchewan Roughrider players as bullying prevention and healthy youth relationships educators. Through their off-season, they travel around the province speaking to students about cultivating healthy relationships, and how to take a stand and stop bullying before it starts.

Presentations can be booked between December and May, and cost $350 (taxes included) plus applicable presenter expenses. To ensure adequate time to deliver program content, schools are required to provide a two-hour time block for the presentation. Should you wish for the presenter to address students in Kindergarten to Grade 4, they will receive a 30-minute presentation with age-appropriate content on their own. Students in Grades 5 and up will be addressed separately afterwards for the remainder of the two-hour timeframe. Should your school prefer that only Grades 5 and up participate, the presenter will use the full two hours.

Last year, more than 25,000 students in 57 communities around the province were educated through these presentations.

To book a presentation, please fill out the Presentation Request Form  and send it by e-mail to kelsi.prince@redcross.ca or by fax to 306-668-0722.
