Arviat Youth Piliriqatigit/Hamlet of Arviat, NU

Arviat Youth Piliriqatigit (AYP) is an organization which was initially formed by youth to provide peer support and interventions targeted at youth suicide prevention. In response to the lack of counselling services in the community, they will train 25 community members in the Wraparound process. The Ikajutigiitsaigit Project will provide a vehicle for youth-to-youth counselling and support, a process for re-engaging families in shared relationship healing by bringing together resources as a community and wrapping them around those in crisis. It will establishes a core group of young and engaged community caregivers who we can also deliver training and support.
