The Provincial Youth Outreach Worker program is back up and running for Dilico Anishinabek Family Care. Alex and Josh have been working to re-establish the program again in our community. It has been a difficult task due COVID-19 restrictions but they have been adhering to the safety protocols in our community. The YOWs have been doing outreach throughout the city and are staying connected with our community partners, as well as assisting Dilico Anishinabek Family Care in their efforts to alleviate the impact of COVID-19 on the vulnerable population. YOWs have been active on social media and have been adapting to virtual outreach. YOWs are also offering virtual online programming for youth in Thunder Bay and the surrounding area.
The YOWs have connected with the other outreach workers in the community to see where they can help. The YOWs have been assembling COVID-19 kits, hygiene kits and snack bags to hand out while doing outreach. Youth Outreach Workers work with youth aged 12-25 with accessing resources within our community.
If you need to contact any of the Youth Outreach Workers you can contact Alex at 629-3358 or Josh at 629-0207
