Are you a youth age 14 – 24? Are you passionate about making an impact in your community? Do you have a project in mind to help prevent alcohol-related harms and/or promote sexual health education?
At the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute, two important areas that we focus on with youth are the prevention of alcohol-related harms (including the prevention of FASD) and the promotion of sexual health. We believe that youth aged 14-24 must be leading the way in primary prevention efforts in order to reach our goal.
The Prevention Institute is pleased to offer to Saskatchewan communities a Youth-led Community Health Grants Program focused on preventing alcohol-related harms and/or promoting sexual health education.

Youth Grant Writing Workshop with Jacq Brasseur
As part of the Youth-led Community Health Grant Program, this workshop offers introductory skill-building for youth in the area of grant writing. The workshop aims to build youth capacity in the area of project planning and development of a grant application to encourage a strong youth-led model.
As part of the Youth-led Community Health Grants Program, we encourage you to evaluate the success of your project by obtaining participant feedback. In addition to other indicators of success (e.g., participation numbers, number of materials distributed, visual images of events, program outputs), obtaining feedback allows you to understand how your activities were experienced and show what your project has accomplished. It is also an excellent way to identify things that worked well and areas for improvement, which is extremely helpful for future projects.
Any evaluation materials used should provide useful feedback on the processes and/or outcomes of your project. Below are two simple evaluation templates that may provide you with ideas for obtaining feedback, which you are welcome to use. One of these templates is for collecting audience feedback (e.g., recipients of a presentation or workshop), and the other is a template for program participant feedback (e.g. peer facilitators or volunteers who participated in the project). Please note that these are general templates. If you are going to use them, they should be modified where necessary to ensure they are appropriate for your specific project.
