Red Fox Updates
Since being awarded by CCEC the 2012 Roger Inman Award for Community Economic Development, Red Fox has expanded to North Vancouver, Surrey and south Vancouver. Red Fox youth leaders train youth and families how to geo-cache in parks and nature trails throughout Metro Vancouver. Our Drum Group has expanded to include PowWow Dancing, and both groups perform at special events. We launched a Youth Leadership training program with Big Brothers. We have a new practicum program with Sprott Shaw College. Youth who have participated in Red Fox have gone on to take post- secondary education in Early Childhood Education and Counseling, and they are working at Urban Native Youth Association, and childcare centres throughout Vancouver.
One of our biggest success stories is Joe. After many years as a youth leader, Joe developed his leadership skills to such a level that he was promoted to Youth Worker, and he now supervises programs on his own, including Weekend Warriors, a pre-teen leadership program at Strathcona Community Centre. Joe supervises the youth at recreation outings and provides life skills coaching while promoting healthy, active living.
