About

The 15 bed gender-inclusive emergency shelter, funded through the Ministry of Social Services (MSS), serves youth between the ages of 16-17. SCP’s Youth Emergency Shelter is a voluntary, youth-centered service intended to provide short term, supportive accommodation on an emergency-crisis intervention basis to at-risk youth.

CULTURAL PROGRAMMING

About

In 2015, Street Culture developed a Cultural Liaison position within the agency. The creation of this position has improved our ability to serve youth of all nations tenfold. Street Culture provides an alternative route that breaks the poverty cycle through resource sharing, youth-centred practices and emphasizing opportunities for personal development. By delivering cultural services to participants, we have seen success in their ability to develop community connection, culture, identity and spirituality. By assisting youth in their journey of cultural identity, we elicit change, determination, leadership and compassion. We connect with already established services and agencies in Saskatchewan to provide the best level of support. Street Culture’s Cultural Liaison works with knowledge keepers to discuss the impact of residential schools and intergenerational trauma with participants. They also provide an introduction to Indigenous culture, ceremonies and activities such as Pow Wow, medicine wheel teachings, naming ceremonies, colours, four directions, four sacred medicines and Treaties. Some programs our Cultural Liaison facilitates include beading, Cree games, medicine wheel activities, round dances, and Indigenous arts and crafts. Additionally, they facilitate support groups based on traditional teachings on mediation, reconciliation and circle checks. Street Culture youth also have the opportunity to attend monthly Sweat Lodge Ceremony’s at Kawakatoose First Nation with Elders. All cultural programming strives to follow appropriate protocol identified by Elders and community members.
