Community Helpers

Did you know that only 1% of youth will talk to a professional first when they need to talk? So, who are they talking to? Youth talk to other youth, their peers (Youth Net/Réseau Ado, 2005 as citied in Community Helpers Program Coordinator’s Guide, 2008).  

The Community Helpers program invites a group of youth to identify peers and adults they find helpful, caring and supportive, through an anonymous survey. Nominated individuals are offered the opportunity to participate in the Community Helpers program. For more information click here

Through this program youth will have the chance to: meet with other helpers to talk about youth issues, learn helping skills and receive resources and information they can use in the future.
