Working with Oxford School, MCCL’s Sobaz Benjamin co-facilitated a program for three grade 9 classes students along side of iMove youth mentor Lindell Smith (there were 10 core students who participated). The program ran in collaboration with Morris Green, Coordinator of Youth Health at the Department of Health and Wellness. Topics range, from addictions issues to healthy sexuality and other health and mental health subjects.
The material was dynamic and sensitive. Facilitators were able to challenge students around these important life issues to think critically. Students were given space to express themselves and the program instilled knowledge around these issues that will lead to healthier decisions and lives. They were taught to be supportive and empathetic. They were also taught the benefits for seeking help and advice around important life issues.
