Youth & Family Peacemakers


The Youth and Family Peacemaker will conduct a needs assessment with at-risk youth and their family to formulate a youth wellness plan. This plan is created from the youth’s perspective of what they need in their lives in order to engage in positive activities while building healthy boundaries and relationships. 

What is a Youth and Family Peacemaker?

A Youth and Family Peacemaker help the youth voice what services or supports they require in order to mitigate at-risk behaviours. The Peacemaker uses a non-judgemental and empathetic approach when assisting the youth and their family to engage in positive changes.

  • Connect youth and families to appropriate community resources through information and supported referrals.
  • Connect with community agencies and service providers to ensure current knowledge of services for youth and families.
  • Share information about educational, health and wellness, community programs and services offered in the community.
  • One-to-one meetings with the youth to create the Youth Wellness Plan in conjunction with their parents/guardians, as needed
  • Facilitate family and community support circles to compliment the youth’s wellness plan.
  • Identifies barriers and support needs of referred youth and families.
  • Provide ongoing check-ins and support to youth and families on how wellness plans are proceeding.
