'Y.E.S.2Know' Youth Summits - partnership with RCMP

Giving students the tools to make healthy and positive lifestyle choices

Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation is partnering with RCMP Strategic Partnership Services to offer the ‘Y.E.S.2Know’ Youth Summits to give local students tools to make healthy and positive lifestyle choices to help them become strong young citizens.

Cpl. Dave Cusson, RCMP’s Strategic Prevention Service Coordinator, explains thatY.E.S.’ stands for Youth Engagement Summit, and ‘2Know’ means to have knowledge now before making a decision.

 "It’s a provincial initiative that’s offered in many communities as a prevention strategy for students in Grades 7-12,” Cpl. Cusson said. “The content of each summit is guided by the needs and desires of the local community and can include themes such as social media, healthy choices and relationships, radicalization, drugs, social belonging, gangs and crime, conflict resolution, economics and jobs, bullying, cyberbullying, and mental health.”

In 2016- 2017, the program was offered at Dover Bay, Wellington, Cedar, Ladysmith, Nanaimo District and John Barsby Secondary Schools.  Over 1,500 students attended the full day of engaging content.  Please check out the videos for more information.
