Alberta Mentoring Partnership

Alberta Mentoring Partnership (AMP) has evolved since forming in 2002, into a coalition of government ministries, government-funded organizations and community agencies whose goal is to raise the profile of mentoring in Alberta. In order to help ensure that “every child or youth in Alberta who needs a mentor has access to one”, AMP works with agencies and organizations to establish or enhance mentoring programs in their local communities.

Safe and Caring has worked in collaboration with AMP since 2011, on the development and delivery of peer-mentor training workshops. We are currently working together on revising our peer mentoring resources and creating a web-friendly version for posting on both AMP’s and Safe and Caring’s websites.

AMA School Safety Patrol

AMA School Safety Patrol, established in 1937, is AMA’s longest-running traffic safety program and relies on collaboration with a wide range of partners. AMA School Safety Patrol is partnering with Safe and Caring on the development of a program that promotes and models respectful traffic safety behaviour in and around schools.

This program, ‘Way to Be! – Living Respectfully’, promotes wellness choices by using traffic safety as a platform for positive change and reinforcement. It is a resource-based program designed to help educators and parents provide youth with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to help them address traffic safety concerns and is currently being piloted in schools across the province.

Status of Women Canada

Status of Women Canada is a federal government organization that promotes equality for women and their full participation in the economic, social and democratic life of Canada.

Status of Women Canada works to advance equality for women by focusing its efforts in three priority areas:
• increasing women's economic security and prosperity;
• encouraging women's leadership and democratic participation; and
• ending violence against women and girls

This 24-month project, ‘Preventing and Reducing Violence Against Women and Girls in High-Risk Neighborhoods’, will address the institutional barriers and other factors that limit community efforts to prevent and reduce violence against First Nations women and girls in the community of Wabasca-Desmarais in Northern Alberta. In partnership with local stakeholders, promising strategies to address violence against women and girls will be identified and piloted in the community. Results will be shared with other Aboriginal communities working to address the same issue.

This project has been supported through the Status of Women Canada’s Women’s program.

WITS Programs

The evidence-based WITS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to create responsive environments that help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization in order to support the development of positive relationships. PREVNET recognizes the WITS Programs as a model for successful school community-based initiatives for dealing with bullying issues. WITS Programs and the University of Victoria are partnered with Safe and Caring to support research about safe, caring and inclusive environments.
