Megah Tornwe and Roanne Varden, Working Warriors Program
On Tuesday we heard a presentation from Megah Tornwe and Roanne Varden on the Working Warriors program. This program is a collaboration between the Edmonton Police Service, Edmonton Public Schools and the Bent Arrow Healing Society in Edmonton. It was conceived a few years ago as a way to help young people, ages twelve to seventeen, transition from correctional services back into society, to become employed or further their education, and become contributing, productive citizens with crime free lifestyles. The program came about because Edmonton Police Services surveys had noted that a large number of offences are often committed by a small number of offenders. They reasoned that if they could especially help young offenders in this category, that they would be able to give these young people a much better life and reduce crime and its associated costs at the same time. For several years now, the police service has identified the top fifty young offenders (Y-50) and have tried various intervention approaches.
The Working Warriors program was begun in conjunction with the Bent Arrow Healing Society in 2016 as a pilot project and received one point six million in funding from Service Canada to provide services to fifty-four youth over a period of two years. The youth who are referred to take part in the program come from very diverse backgrounds, with many confounding risk factors, usually starting in early childhood, so the support services provided are very wide ranging. They are a mix of young people who are in custody, on probation, or sometimes neither. Assessments are done and continually updated so that the program is tailored for each participant, to provide the services that they require and also those they have an interest in. These may include housing assistance, addictions counselling, conflict resolution training, life skills training, work ethics training, resume writing, educational courses (provided by Edmonton Public Schools), and specific job-related training and employment opportunities. The program also covers wages at minimum wage for up to three months for employers willing to provide work experience.  They also provide support to keep the young people on track and intervene as needed to give them every chance to succeed.
The program is completely voluntary on the part of the participants. Candidates are recommended for the program by a Y-50 constable and undergo a needs assessment, including CASEY Life Skills testing . There is a two- week probationary period to ensure participants are committed to taking part. A three-month period then follows where the participants attend training in the program for two days a week and either attend school or take part in work experience for three days a week. The program is designed to last for up to one year for each participant with follow up for longer in some cases. The measure of success is either full time hired employment or schooling combined with a crime free lifestyle. As of February this year, one year from inception, they have provided services for seventy youth with a success rate of over sixty five percent.  They concluded their presentation with a quote from Churchill, saying ‘The definition of success, is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm’. Their goal is to give these young people the skills and also the will they need to succeed in life.
Jewish Senior Centre News
On Thursday March 1, President Vince assisted by Hans Pilz, presented a cheque for $2,500 to support programs at the Jewish Senior Centre.  
The Jewish Seniors Drop In Centre is committed to engaging its members and keeping them involved in life. Not only do we provide a variety of presentations at the centre, we arrange out trips to locations such as Elk Island Park to hear a lecture at the only dark sky location around Edmonton. We also arranged a trip to Luminaria at the Devonian Gardens, a trip to a murder mystery, an opera evening and many others. To get participants to an event we have to hire a bus and a bus is not cheap.
In fact transportation is the largest expense we have at the club.
So, when we were kindly given a donation of $2,500.00 by Edmonton Strathcona Rotary we were so pleased as we knew that Rotarians "got it": keeping seniors connected is important. Not only does it enrich lives but it also helps lessen feelings of loneliness and helplessness.
Thank you to our friends at Rotary

Patrick Gibson, New Hope School Fundraising Presentation

New Hope School

Our Rotary group has partnered in a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Pretoria to help raise funds for the New Hope School in Pretoria. Patrick Gibson has put together a presentation that he will be making to the other rotary clubs in our area to encourage them to help us with this venture. Our goal is to put enough funding in place for us to be able to apply for a Rotary International matching grant.
Patrick gave us the same presentation he will be making to other local rotary groups. It included a short introduction on the New Hope School, followed by a video that has been prepared by the New Hope School. The New Hope School has been one of the projects of our club for some years now, and most of our members are well aware of the work they do in schooling for handicapped children in the Pretoria area. They provide many services above and beyond the usual schooling activities, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and many others, as needed by their students.
They receive only basic funding from the local government, so must fundraise to provide these other services. Some of the specific projects our funds could be used for would be a specialised playground, or programs to provide technical skills such as kitchen skills, nail and hair salon skills and sewing skills.  Patrick has also put together a ‘Go Fund Me’ page on the web, on which people can get more information, view the video and make contributions. We will also be adding a link on our Rotary web page to this site.
