STR8 UP Info Session

DATE:  Tuesday, January 16 at 7 PM – 9 PM

LOCATION: Mayfair Community School, 510 34th Street West

This 2 hour session describes the journey to become a gang member, often beginning in early childhood or even prior to birth. Poverty, racism, abandonment, and various forms of dysfunction and abuse lead young people into a life which promises acceptance and fulfillment, but which in fact is addictive, criminal, and controlled by others. Our society seems unable to reclaim these alienated and troubled youth. In this presentation, the Medicine Wheel is the holistic model used in the beginning of a journey of healing. Stan Tu’Inukuafe will talk about the history of youth without belonging, as well as the needs and processes in a journey of recovery and rehabilitation.

During the second and third part of the presentation, STR8-UP members (all recovering gang members) will share their criminal and incarceration experiences and will focus on their self-empowerment and rehabilitation in achieving a healthy transformation. Open exchange and discussion with the audience will close the session.

SPONSORED BY: Hudson Bay Park/Mayfair/Kelsey Woodlawn, Westmount, and Caswell Hill Community Association. All welcome. Donations will be graciously accepted, but are not required.

AGM Update

Today’s Community Association AGM (Annual General Meeting) for 2017-2018

It looks like it will be a great start to the 2017-2018 year for community volunteers with the Community Association. A big thank you to everyone who came out to the AGM today. It was great to see new board members elected and the return of former ones, along with new members for the citizen patrol. Welcome to everyone.

You can get in touch with Community Association on this website if you send a message. If you couldn’t make the meeting but are interested in citizen patrol, being a volunteer for the board, have questions about how you can help, or have suggestions/ideas for the community, we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteers are always needed and always appreciated – the more we have the more we can do in the community.
