The Métis Settlements Life Skills Journey program is a community-grounded life skills training program that focuses on substance use/misuse and bullying prevention through building resiliency. Since 2013, it has been implemented with over 700 children aged 7-14 from seven Métis Settlements: Buffalo Lake, Elizabeth, Fishing Lake, East Prairie, Gift Lake, Peavine, and Kikino. We have had the pleasure to work with 95 facilitators, who have come from these seven Métis Settlements! To learn more about our journey, check out our Building Resiliency with Metis Youth Storymap: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/b02e0a4516ea406c856da72421e53351
