Purpose: This 24-month project will build on the success of a previous project administered by Making Waves/Vague par Vague to enhance young women’s involvement in violence prevention strategies. This project will increase young womens’ leadership opportunities in community action strategies. A 12-member youth cabinet, composed of young women and men, will oversee the creation, development and delivery of a model approach in English and French communities and one chosen Aboriginal community. They will then create an opportunity for everyone involved to come together in a provincial conference to discuss best practices; build capacity and share information and results. Youth will create a sustainable framework for provincial youth-centered relationship violence prevention directed by community action teams and led by young women. This initiative will have a sustainable impact by contributing to a “zero tolerance” environment for dating violence.
