Our Workshops

Our facilitation team is available for workshop bookings, however please note that we are often booking 4-12 weeks in advance. Our facilitators are professionally trained, socially engaged youth who strive to create safe, supportive spaces for all workshop participants.

All of our experiential workshops incorporate ice breakers, energizers, reflections, and debriefs and are geared towards youth ages 12-18.

We are in the process of revising our workshops as we strive to continue to stay relevant by providing accurate and appropriate content for Yukon youth. We are taking a serious look at the workshops we bring into youth settings and make sure that our facilitators are well equipped to guide these conversations by consulting with experts in the community as well as youth advisors. 

As such, we will not be charging facilitation fees for the workshops that we are in the process of updating. We have indicated below which workshops will temporarily not carry facilitation fees.  Please note that during this review period, we will still charge some administrative costs for our workshops. For a full breakdown of the costs associated with our workshops, please see our Pricing

Healthy Minds (1-2 hours) 

No Facilitation Fee

How does the teenage brain differ from the adult brain? What is stress and how does it affect our bodies and minds? What coping mechanisms can young people use to achieve mental wellbeing? Our Healthy Minds workshop answers these questions and aims to help youth achieve both short and long-term mental wellbeing in a positive, non-triggering space. We explore mindfulness, journalling, recognizing and expressing emotions, and building positive support networks to provide participants with tools to develop coping skills, resilience, and positive mental health.

Healthy Relationships (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Relationships with our family, friends, romantic partners or goldfish define many aspects of our lives, but learning to navigate them can be a challenge. Through interactive discussions, role-playing, and visual aids, we explore what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like and where they can lead us. We reflect on personal boundaries and encourage youth to build self-esteem through a variety of activities that help prepare participants for challenges in various relationships. We also discuss how to support those in unhealthy relationships and identify community resources that are available to them.

We are now offering two extensions of our Healthy Relationships workshop: Healthy Boundaries and Healthy Breakups. 

Exploring Consent (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

If you’re stuggling with consent, imagine that you’re making a cup of tea…We help define consent in this workshop through discussion and engaging activities that push beyond the “no means no” conversation. Youth develop skills to recognize when consent is present and when it is not, and to practice confidently asking for consent,. We encourage youth to reflect on their bodily autonomy and boundaries, as well as recognizing and respecting the needs of others. This workshop aims at normalizing conversations of consent in a fun and interactive way.

Safer Partying (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Youth encounter substance use on a regular basis, either directly or indirectly. By asking youth where they stand on certain issues, and by discussing the advantages and disadvantages of substance use, participants are able to evaluate their own perceptions and better understand steps to healthier lifestyles. Using the model of harm reduction and experiential activities, we discuss with participants how to be accountable for their actions and how to stay safe.

Leadership (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Our experiential leadership workshop explores qualities of a good leader, the different challenges leaders might face, and how we can communicate in order to lead effectively. We discover different leadership styles through a series of challenges in which participants take a leadership role to guide the team through the challenge. Through these challenges, we discuss qualities of good leaders and how they might be able to apply these qualities to grow into confident leaders themselves.

Cyber Safe (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Our Cyber Safe workshop asks youth to think about how they engage with their community when they’re texting, using social media or various other forms of digital communication. Rather than focusing on “cyberbullying” and the dangers of online activities, Cyber Safe acknowledges that young people live in a digital world and asks them how they can leave a positive footprint behind. We give youth the tools to consider what is public and what is private, to determine the line for appropriate and inappropriate activities, and to protect their own privacy. We focus on building empathy to promote appreciation and inclusion amongst peers.

Equity & Allyship (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

What makes us feel oppressed? How do we oppress others? What conscious and unconscious biases do we hold that prevent us from wanting to connect with others that we feel are not like “us”? Based on personal reflection and group activities, this challenging workshop seeks to dissect stereotypes and biases to strengthen our ability to work cooperatively across ethnicities, genders, geographies, and backgrounds. We strive to build trust, respect, and understanding among participants. Our goal is to create a safe(r) and supportive atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable learning about people who are different from them and trying out new ways to express themselves.

This is Our Land (1 hour)

No Facilitation Fee

We hear about climate change all the time, but what’s really happening to the land around us? In this workshop, we encourage youth to look closely at the land they live on and to connect with community members and knowledge holders to answer this question. We ask youth what the land means to them and how they can watch over it. Youth consider how their own lives and culture are intrinsically linked to the land and how they, in turn, can change their environment for the better or for the worse. We aim to empower youth as stewards and caretakers of their environment, and as important planners in their community’s future.

From First Job to Dream Job (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Finding your first job can be tough. Finding a job that lets you develop your strengths and reach your true potential can sometimes seem impossible. In this workshop, youth begin by reflecting on their personal strengths and how to incorporate these strengths into a working resume. We practice interview skills through role-playing and mock interviews. Finally, we brainstorm jobs that youth know of now, their dream jobs they want to work towards, and how to move from the jobs available to them now towards their dream jobs in the future.

Right to be Heard (1-2 hours)

No Facilitation Fee

Youth have the right to be heard, the right to participate and the right to share opinions. Developing this awareness brings the confidence to share knowledge and become active members in their communities. The workshop focuses on the value of participating and sharing opinions in our communities, exploring places where we can express ourselves and be heard, and potential obstacles.
