Coast Capital Savings supports Ask Auntie - a violence and suicide prevention program to help Aboriginal girls.

May 11 2017 2:49pm
Our friends at Coast Capital are investing in the well-being of young girls in this early prevention response program. Unacceptably high rates of violence towards girls, and youth suicide are the result of current and historical barriers to wellness in Aboriginal communities in BC.

The Ask Auntie project focus is to combine traditional and conventional teachings, technology and in-community activities to ground Aboriginal girls in their heritage, promote a greater understanding of sexual health and healthy relationships, and give youth a voice in ending violence in communities.

Through piloting and evaluation, Ask Auntie will become a model for a province-wide network and a framework for service/program delivery.  

Thank you Coast Capital Savings for your $10,000 donation to help the  young women in our communities.
