The Labrador Friendship Centre’s SHIELD Project and the Central Labrador YMCA partnered to host Dr. Sarah Sauvé, who facilitated her youth leadership event, Build Your Power, for an amazing group of local youth on November 3, 2021.
Dr. Sarah Sauvé (she/her) is a music scientist & activist focused primarily on zero waste practices & plastic pollution. She was involved in CISV, an international not-for-profit in peace education for 10 years, working with youth & leadership development at the local & national levels in Canada, the UK & internationally! Sarah was excited to partner with us to offer this event on her first trip to Labrador.
Through activity & discussion, participants explored what power means to them, how they already experience power & how they can grow their power to achieve their goals.The SHIELD Project team shared resources and led a conversation about STBBI prevention and decision making in sexual health.
