Amelia Rising Sexual Assault Centre of Nipissing
Nipissing, Ontario

The Empowered Youth Program will increase teens’ understanding of healthy relationships (with intimate partners, family, friends, community and self) through education, counselling, and a support group. It also seeks to address the gap in local services for those who identify as 2SLGBTQ+, and who may be facing isolation and/or abuse. The program raises teens’ awareness and fosters a culture of consent, equity, respect, safety, and resilience.
