Health Promotion Through Youth Engagement: An Environmental Scan of Canadian Programs
Issues of youth alcohol and drug use, sexual health, and mental health are inextricably linked, and youth with limited access to services and resources are likely at an increased risk of related harms. Extensive research has demonstrated the effectiveness of youth engagement supported by adult allies for addressing youth health, particularly the prevention of alcohol-related harms and the promotion of sexual health. This report shares information about youth engagement programs and activities across Canada that deliver harm reduction, health-promoting programming for youth that are harder to reach and/or those who experience marginalization based on identity, geographic location, class, etc. The purpose of this document is to provide inspiration, context, and contacts from existing programs to facilitate the development of innovative youth engagement programs in Saskatchewan.
