United Way Yukon provided funding to support First Nations Yukon youth working to end Lateral Violence
In 2015-2016, United Way Yukon helped fun a project involving several youth from the Kwanlin Dün First Nation.
The group of youth worked with project staff to develop a Lateral Violence Workshop which they delivered in their community and other communities in Yukon. Some of the youth have continued delivering a version of the workshop on their own.
The videos below were made by videographer Gyde Shepherd in collaboration with the youth participating in the project. Each of the youth received an iPad and learned how to use it to do interviews and edit short videos.
The first video features some of the youth, along with project staff and Kwanlin Dün First Nation Chief Doris Bill. The youth used the second and third videos when they delivered the workshops to educate and engage participants. These videos are good resources for anyone wishing to learn about lateral violence and/or develop a lateral violence workshop in their community.
