Purpose: This project is an arts based peer mentoring program targeting youth held in custody at the Nova Scotia Youth Facility who are vulnerable to or already involved in gangs. This program includes strategies to assist the youth in building self awareness and social connection through personal story telling, performance art, music, film making and editing, and social media activities. The program will be offered twice per annum in an intensive twelve (12) week cycle. It is anticipated that 72 youth will be enrolled in the program over the course of project. The program will continue in the community for youth who are given full or conditional release from the youth facility and other youth referred to the program. The youth will engage with iMOVe mentors (youth previously involved in the criminal justice system) who will provide community reintegration peer support.
