CoachCast no. 89 Mental Health Panel (live)

New Path Youth & Family Services has received a grow grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to fund our continued evaluation work. Over the next 3 years, we will use a participatory evaluation model to assist in the engagement of youth with lived experience, athletes and coaches to develop a new program related to Peer-to-Peer Mentorship. We will provide training  on peer mentorship and then support them to mentor other youth and athletes. This project is a collaborative initiative with The Students Commission of Canada who is lead of The Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement, and RISE Athlete Support Programs who is a collection of Coaches, educators and high performance athletes focused on providing resources for young athletes as they develop into strong team and community leaders. Through our evaluation work more athletes and youth with lived experience will have emotional and social strengths, and coaches and mentors will have the skills to support children and youth who are facing barriers. 

On May 28th RISE and our ETR partners facilitated the Youth Summit on Mental Health.  This episode is an exerpt from the panel.
