Youth Opioids Awareness Program

Join the conversation about the opioid crisis with the Youth Opioid Awareness Program.

Learn about opioids, prevention, recovery and how you can help protect yourself and your community. Offering interactive and engaging workshops, the YOAP aims to increase awareness about opioids in youth ages 15–24 via harm reduction in an enjoyable way through activities such as escape rooms, crafts, and more. The program offers workshop sessions that maintain full confidentiality and are available in person and online. The program aligns with the health and physical education curriculum for grades 9 to 12 in Ontario, Newfoundland, and British Columbia.
