Purpose: The Recipient proposes to deliver a culturally-relevant pilot project which will provide workshops to Aboriginal youth within the criminal justice system who have illicit substance use issues. These workshops will address their addiction, reconnect them with their heritage and culture, and support them in beginning their healing journey. Youth will attend a series of three, five-day workshops, over three months. One-on-one guidance and support will also be provided to those who need it. The workshops will target substance abuse, anger management solutions, family dynamics and communication strategies which will help youth to transition back into society and take steps to make healthier life choices. Youth participants in the program will be referred by the Six Nations Grand-River Correctional Service.
