Hate Hurts is a diversity and hate/bias education program for junior and senior high schools. This program provides schools with the skill development, information and resources needed to support an environment that actively addresses issues of hate, bias and discrimination to foster safe spaces.
This award-winning program was developed by the Calgary Police Service. It offers one to three hour presentations. The presentations include information around hate and bias crimes as well as active witness skill training.
Addictions Programs (in conjunction with SWAT)
Any Time is the Right Time
The most common conversation SWAT has with parents is about how to broach the subject of substance abuse with their children. This workshop is intended as an introduction for the parent to learn how to begin talking about risky behaviours such as alcohol and drug abuse, among other self-destructive behaviours.
Not Just Another Anonymous Face
In this presentation, we explore very frankly the long term physical and emotional effects of substance abuse. The majority of this program is a series of three very personal stories of real people suffering from addiction and where it led them. The aim of this program is to appeal to the youth’s sense of self-preservation, and to understand that physical maiming, suffering terminal illnesses and ultimately death happens not only to the anonymous faces we see on the screen or those that we hear third-hand, but real people related to people in our community.
