Youth Services Section
Ῑdᾱnágúzhōt-ná (I-da-na-gu-shot-na) Youth Services Section
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.
Resilience, wellness, advocacy and connection.
