The Community Education program is currently recruiting Youth Educators for our upcoming training

Youth Educators promote mental wellness among youth by facilitating interactive high school workshops on Mindfulness-Based Stress Management and Suicide Awareness and Response.  This is a great opportunity to work with students in grades 8-12 in a fun and prevention-focused capacity.

  • Wednesday, April 3rd – 7:00 pm
  • Tuesday, April 16th – 7:00 pm
  • Monday, April 29th – 7:00 pm

Please contact Tiffany Robinson to register: (604)872-1811 ext.234 or email trobinson@crisiscentre.bc.ca

The Crisis Centre is located at 763 East Broadway, Vancouver.

Those interested should apply online by Friday, April 12th.
