Teen Talk is a Youth Health Education Program part of Klinic Community Health Centre. We provide services for youth from a harm reduction, prevention education perspective. We focus on issues under the broad topics of sexual and mental health and link youth to resources in their community. We adhere to the belief that by providing youth with accurate, non-judgmental information they can make healthier decisions and choices for themselves. If you would like more information on Teen Talk please feel free to contact 204-784-4010.
Teen Talk has the following two programs:
Workshops for Youth
In the Workshops for Youth Program the skilled Youth Health Educators develop and deliver interactive workshops to youth aged 14-19 in a variety of settings such as high schools, after school programming, alternative youth programming and treatment facilities. All workshops are available throughout Manitoba. City workshops are available Tuesday through Friday (Friday am only). For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The Peer Support Program consists of a youth-directed 32-35 hr comprehensive training program to educate their peers after the training is complete. 3 in-house trainings occur throughout the year. These newly trained peer supporters can initiate activities in their schools and communities such as skit presentations, information tables and educational events.
If you have an existing Peer Support or Peer Helper group in your school you can request a supplemental workshop. We are able to meet with groups for up to an entire day to supplement their training. We may also be available if you would like to organize a full training for your school, neighborhood or region. Contact email@example.com or 204-784-4010 to discuss these opportunities.
After completing the Teen Talk Peer Support Training, youth volunteer about 24 hours per month rehearsing and presenting interactive skits for middle school aged youth. This group of dedicated volunteers has created characters and storylines to address issues like alcohol and decision making, sexual and mental health, homophobia, healthy and toxic relationships, and other issues youth are dealing with.
Audiences are given the opportunity to truly get involved in learning about these issues, because they get to help the characters decide what to do and say! Each presentation includes youth-led discussions between scenes where participants get a chance to further explore the topics shown in the skit.
