Hello Safe and Caring family!

You can help

The Society for Safe and Caring Schools & Communities is excited to participate in The Great Canadian Giving Challenge: YOU can help us win $10,000! It’s so easy. Just click on CanadaHelps.org or givingchallenge.ca. Every $ you donate to Safe and Caring in June qualifies us to win $10,000.

Serving the entire province of Alberta, Safe and Caring is funded solely by donations. We work with K-12 schools and their teachers and community leaders through a mentorship approach. Our workshops are aimed at teachers, parents, leaders, and teen mentors within the community, and are designed to empower and enable children and adults to create healthy relationships and environments.

What your donations will support

NEW for 2016! SAC is proud to lead the 2016 Orange Shirt Campaign. Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event, held in the spring of 2013 in Williams Lake, BC, Canada. The event has grown out of a former student’s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day at the residential school. The Orange Shirt Campaign is meant to recognize the harm done to residential school students, and show a commitment to the principle that every child matters!

SAC builds community capacity to prevent bullying, aggression, violence, and exploitation of children and youth through the promotion of healthy relationships. Our vision is that every school and community will be a safe, caring, healthy, and inclusive environment where each child can grow to be a successful, respectful, and responsible contributor to our society.

 

We currently provide workshops to schools and community leaders developed around human rights, bullying prevention, healthy relationships, and supporting Aboriginal, newcomer, and LGBTQ students.

 

Your donation would ensure the continued and expanded delivery of these critical supports to our education system and community partners.
