The Ῑdᾱnágúzhōt-ná Youth Services Section (YSS) is a community-based intervention program delivered in partnership with the Tsuut'ina Nation Police Service funded by Public Safety Canada, to support youth aged 6-25 years old, who are involved or at-risk of involvement in the Criminal Justice System. Youth who work with the Youth Services Section, will have access to two streams of support. The first stream is community programming which aims to provide youth and community unique opportunities that address various risks for youth on Tsuut'ina Nation and within Canada. The second stream is, one-on-one support from an outreach worker to address root causes of crime through an individualized case plan that is based off of the goals of the client. Participation by youth in the Youth Services Section is voluntary.
Our goal is provide all individuals who request our assistance a safe, comfortable and opportunistic environment for Tsuut'ina children and youth.
To empower Indigenous youth to find community, culture and opportunities that promote positive development.
For every youth to find the light within themselves to become future leaders.
I was born in Edmonton, AB and moved to Calgary, AB at an early age.
At the age of 11 I moved to Tsuut’ina Nation where I currently reside with my family.
I am the eldest of 3 siblings. I graduated from Bishop O’Byrne.
I attended Mount Royal University where I completed two years of post-secondary learning other languages and Aboriginal studies.
I began working at 15 as a Youth worker with the Tsuut’ina Recreation department.
I developed a strong connection with the youth and their families.
I have played hockey since 9 years of age.
My goal is to share my education and skills with my community and be of service with my knowledge.
My hope with the Sports Empowerment program is to encourage more youth to be more involved and engaged with Sports and our Police Service – Tosguna.
My core values are my family, my culture, my mental/physical health, respect of others, honesty, and the love for my community.
