The E.D.G.E. (Everyone Deserves Growth and Empowerment)

Mission, British Columbia   V2V 4Z7
Three years in development, the E.D.G.E. Lifeskills programme is a comprehensive series of nine lifeskills/crime prevention workshop sessions aimed at youth in schools and communities. The program is based partly on Gordon Graham?s Breaking Barriers, a highly successful American programme that assists corporate business people and adult offenders in prison to change thinking patterns, and develop new strategies to lead productive lives. The E.D.G.E. is facilitated by trained ex-offenders in cooperation with mainstream educators and social workers. The objectives of the programme are to give youth the tools to deal effectively and constructively within an increasingly volatile world and to help them avoid making wrong choices which lead to crime and violence. The program also helps to identify youth who need more specialized programming.

The Human Impact of Murder Speaking Enagements with Offenders and Survivors of Homicide

 
L.I.N.C. (Long-term Inmates Now in the Community)

Phone:604-820-1015

Sherry Edmunds-Flett or Glen Flett
33270 14th Ave
Mission, British Columbia   V2V 4Z7
We feel it is important to truly look at the human impact of murder. Inspired by a former L.I.N.C. board member whose son was shot to death, we try to integrate survivors with offenders in our public speaking engagements. Most Canadians will never know the trauma of losing a loved one in such circumstances. Instead their views are formed mainly by the media. Murder in some sense becomes objectified or faceless. Victims and their loved ones are forgotten alone in their grief; offenders, with their families and friends, are isolated behind a wall of shame. Unanswered are questions such as how does one cope with the trauma of sudden death? What does it mean to take a life and to live with that guilt? Visit www.lincsociety.bc.ca for some of our events.
