The Canadian Red Cross held a workshop called “Beyond the Hurt” for youths at Fort St. James Secondary School.

The workshop held on Nov. 4 – 5 at the Historic Park brought out seven student volunteers who were interested in change, in making an impact and in helping others through the effects of bullying.

Canadian Red Cross facilitator, Ellie Langford-Parks led the discussion surrounding healthy relationships, power, bullying, labels and stereotypes, the impacts of bullying and intervention and response.

According to Jhenipher Bridgeman, at risk youth worker at FSJSS, the training will allow these students the opportunity to facilitate their own workshops and to talk to elementary school students.

“It’s all about youth talking to youth and youth mentoring youth,” Bridgeman said.

By the end of the two day session, the students received their certificates of completion. “I’m so proud of what you all accomplished here,” Lang-ford-Parks said.
