Project Child recovery is a proactive program that promotes healthy coping strategies for children and youth, focuses on creating strong and resilient young leaders by creating a safe place for youth to explore their passions and gifts. and ensures they have the support and services they need.   YWCA NWT offers age appropriate, supportive peer group sessions to address common concerns and promote choices that are non-violent. It is a free program accessible for youth ages 8 to 14 through YWCA NWT.

 

Participants are encouraged to talk about their feelings, explore healthy coping strategies, discover a support system, develop a safety plan and enhance their self-esteem. Every session is facilitated by a professional and is designed to increase the child or teen's sense of belonging and trust and can include group sessions, outings and more.
