Focus

To empower local youth and community members through health based lessons and community events

Queen’s Health Outreach Northern Initiative is a unique initiative with 4 different locations in Northern Canada. We’re hiring 8 Peer Educators for 2016/17 to travel in pairs to one of our locations either in Webequie, ON, Salluit, QC, Pond Inlet, NU and Fort Providence, NWT. We focus on tailoring our curriculum to the needs of the various communities we work in and centre our teaching around all aspects of health. This includes mental, physical, social and sexual health. We also focus on supplementing the already existing extracurricular programs in the communities along with running our own workshops and activities on various topics such as leadership and self-esteem. We run activities such as snack programs, yoga and running clubs and much more!
