Supporting Newcomer Access Project: SNAP. Call Out for Volunteers. Planned Parenthood Toronto.

Planned Parenthood Toronto is currently looking for newcomer youth to volunteer with SNAP: Supporting Newcomer Access Project. 

SNAP is a peer sexual health education and leadership project for newcomer youth in Toronto. We train newcomer youth in the city to become Peer Educators who then make and lead workshops all around the city. SNAP Peer Educators will engage youth from diverse newcomer communities in Toronto to address the lack of relevant, accessible sexual health education for newcomer youth through the development and delivery of peer-led sexual health education workshops, activities and new media/communication technology resources. SNAP Peer Educators will form a Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), and with support and guidance from PPT Staff, the YAC will work together to develop sexual health education workshops for newcomer youth that they will deliver in the community.

All Peer Educators accepted into the program will participate in comprehensive training to increase knowledge of sexual and reproductive health and get skills necessary to create and deliver sexual health programming to other newcomer youth.

Please spread the word!  If you know anyone that would benefit from volunteering with SNAP, please encourage them to apply.  Feel free to share this information with your networks.  My apologies for cross-posting.
