2020 4Y Program

4Y PROGRAM

A support and navigation program for children and youth in Yellowknife living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

ABOUT

The 4Y Program is designed to meet the needs of youth in Yellowknife who have a whole body disability caused by prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE), and for those with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The program is trauma-informed and facilitated by a navigator. It includes arts, music, culture, life skills, and physical education components. Youth are involved in one-to-one sessions every week, and occasionally join in group sessions with other program participants.

 
 
 

NAVIGATE SYSTEMS

We provide support to all participants as they navigate education, employment, medical, and justice systems

DEVELOP

MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS

We prioritize relationship building between youth and their facilitator, as well as between participants in the program

LEARN LIFE SKILLS

We work with each participant to learn the life skills that are necessary for them to live independent or semi-independent and happy lives

FASD exists in all communities in which alcohol is consumed. Communities that have access to more resources are much more likely to have better services and supports in places for individuals with FASD. In Yellowknife, the lack of necessary services and supports to ensure that all individuals with FASD are having their needs met leaves people vulnerable to additional challenges, such as homelessness, addictions, and mental health issues.
