Job Posting – 3 positions available – Healthy Youth Program for Everyone

Healthy Youth Program  for Everyone Overview:

The Healthy Youth Program for Everyone is a successful new program entering it’s second year in Delta to engage youth in healthy, community-based activities that promote personal, social, community and mental health. Youth and the CSP of the Delta School District have determined our need for programming through consultation with school staff, community service providers, parent requests and the use of research and evaluative tools such as the EDI & MDI (United Way of Lower Mainland) and Statistics Canada. The Healthy Youth Program for Everyone (HYPE) succeeds in providing structured programs to meet these goals, partly based on program development supporting Health Canada’s 12 Determinants of Health.  The HYPE primarily engages 5 of these determinants: Income and Social Status, Education, Physical Environments, Personal Health Practices and Coping Skills, Social Support Networks and Gender.

In our community we know there are serious concerns regarding Youth becoming involved in anti-social or illegal activities.  We believe that “Investing in a range of social supports for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal children and youth is in itself an effective youth crime prevention strategy” (Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Representative for Children and Youth.  BC. Feb. 2009). We know that the programs offered by CSJ HYP provide much needed social support and community engagement – which may defer our Youth from engaging in anti-social or criminal activity.

Early intervention in all areas is essential – to reduce / eliminate obesity, provide academic support to retain more students in school, engage Youth positively with other positive Youth to develop a greater sense of community pride and engagement.
