Kindness at the DYC

Published February 14, 2017 20:00

On February 22nd, The Downtown Youth Centre is running the Inside Out Healthy Relationship Workshop at 3-4PM in cooperation with the Women's Shelter Violence Prevention Program. Youth are going to learn about and discuss forgiveness and the power of kindness. The workshop includes snacks and an opportunity to win a $10 Draw Prize for participation.

At 6:30pm that same day, the DYC staff will be screening "A Girl Like Her," a drama film that depicts the impact of bullying on teens. A discussion will take place after the film.

Staff at the DYC are excited to incorporate Pink Shirt Day's message of kindness into their programming. Bullying exacerbates many of the struggles teens go through and it is important for teens to know its affects.
