Mentoring as an early intervention: A proactive approach to youth homelessness with David French, A Way Home

Did you know that your youth mentoring program actually acts as a protective factor against youth homelessness? In addition to the multitude of other positive academic and social outcomes that a quality mentoring relationship provides, the role of a mentor in growing natural supports and resilience in a young person was identified as an important Early Intervention in the recently released “ROADMAP FOR THE PREVENTION OF YOUTH HOMELESSNESS.”Join Director of Policy and Planning with A Way Home, David French, to learn more about how your mentoring contributes to a proactive approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness, how common outcomes can be valuable in helping all of us advance our work and the roadmap.The Roadmap for the Prevention of Youth Homelessness is designed to help service providers, policymakers, communities, advocates, researchers, and all people in Canada better understand the meaning of youth homelessness prevention. It provides a clear definition of youth homelessness prevention, a prevention typology, and a common language for policy and practice, outlining:What is youth homelessness prevention, and what isn’t it?Who is responsible for youth homelessness prevention?What are systems approaches to prevention?What program models and interventions exist?What is the evidence for youth homelessness prevention?The Roadmap is a useful guide to why and how prevention can contribute to a comprehensive system’s response to youth homelessness, detailing evidence-based and informed program models that can help communities and governments implement plans to prevent and end youth homelessness. The Roadmap has been directly informed by consultations with youth across Canada, who have experienced homelessness. To reform our response to youth homelessness, it is critical that youths’ voices, experiences, and insights are the cornerstone of the work.1) How to Subscribe (and leave us a review!)Subscribe on iTunesSubscribe on SticherSubscribe on Google Play2) How to listen on your computer:3) CreditsLearn more at albertamentors.caBackground Music: www.bensound.com

Sexual and Gender Diverse (SGD) Youth Mentoring Program Guide: Amy Jeske & Alexandra Jansen, Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton

The Alberta Mentoring Partnership is excited to share a new resource, the Sexual and Gender Diverse (SGD) Youth Mentoring Program Guide. We are excited to share this resource with you and have secured two special guests, Amy Jeske (Mentoring Manager) and Alexandra Jansen (Match Facilitator), Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton. There is a growing awareness that Sexual and Gender Diverse in-person mentoring relationships can serve an essential role for SGD youth, as they would be well-positioned to offer ongoing support to the needs of youth as they navigate through phases of exploring, accepting, and sharing their identity with others. Given that SGD youth face unique challenges, and there is a strong belief that mentors can help them positively navigate these challenges, many organizations have started taking an interest in developing new programs or improving existing programming to address the unique needs of SGD youth. This guide was created by BGCBigs (Boys & Girls Clubs and Big Brothers Big Sisters) Edmonton as a resource for the Alberta Mentoring Partnership. However, the guide can be a reference for youth and community organizations in Alberta and Canada who are interested in this topic. The guide contains recommendations and best practices for working with SGD youth and highlights program design considerations. The program design elements in this manual could be tailored for use in existing mentorship programs that wish to serve SGD youth more effectively or could provide the basis for standalone mentorship programs principally focused on SGD youth and mentors. With Thanks and support to the: The Pride Center of Edmonton, Government of Alberta, BGCBigs, SGD working group, BBBS Calgary, BBBS Winnipeg, and MENTOR. 1) How to Subscribe (and leave us a review!)
