Second Stage Safe Haven Inc, Saint John

Healthy Relationships for Youth will deliver the Fourth R’s Healthy Relationships Program to grade 8 students in  Saint John and surrounding rural areas. The Fourth R program was founded on the belief that relationship knowledge should be taught alongside the other 3 “R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic. It aims to prevent dating violence, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence. Each of schools will host 28 one-hour, interactive sessions to engage students in discussions, activities, and practice leadership. Students get the chance to provide their input and feedback, while exploring topics related to violence prevention and healthy relationships.

Grant amount: $18,000
