CSSDP is launching a two year national cannabis education project to engage young people across Canada in sensible, evidence informed cannabis education and support. Building from an extensive, evidence-based resource titled, “Sensible Cannabis Education: A Toolkit for Educating Youth”, which aims to guide educators and parents in having non-stigmatizing, informative, and mutually beneficial conversations with young people about cannabis, this two year project will engage English and French speaking young people aged 17-25 through a series of workshops and other engagement activities. We also seek to expand the assets related to the dissemination and utility of the toolkit (e.g. website, social media messaging, posters, pamphlets, etc.), and provide a platform to hear, learn from and educate young people across the country. Additionally, CSSDP is looking to update and translate the toolkit into languages other than French and English, as well as host an additional seminar series to engage relevant stakeholders such as parents and teachers.
UPDATE: CSSDP has received an overwhelming amount of applications and support for these positions. Thank you to everyone who has applied!
