SHINE

Prevention Program for Students in Grades 5, 6 and Secondary 1

SHINE (Self-esteem, Healthy relationships, Independence, No means no, Empowerment) aims to prevent sexual exploitation and is addressed to youth aged 10 to 13. The workshops deal with assertiveness, independence, setting boundaries, sex gender stereotypes, and the importance of developing healthy and egalitarian relationships with others.

The creation of this bilingual and province-wide program was made possible thanks to a major grant, as well as the participation of key stakeholders and experts in the field of sexual exploitation of youth.

Our ultimate goal is to significantly reduce the number of children and youth that fall victim to sexual exploitation in Quebec.

With our workshops suspended for the remainder of the school year, the Missing Children’s Network is pleased to offer a variety of activities for pre-teens, inspired by our SHINE program. It is important that we continue to raise awareness and prevent the abuse and sexual exploitation of our youth. These activities can be conducted either in a classroom setting or at home with your family. Feel free to add your personal touch!

Today’s post is all about self-esteem: a key element in the construction of identity for youth, allowing them to resist to peer pressure and bad influences. We propose the following two activities: The Hope Box and I am a Star!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. It will be our pleasure to assist you.

The present pandemic has taught us all about the importance of social distancing and the 2 meter rule. When speaking with your children about social distancing, we suggest you also help them understand that they do not have to engage in conversations with adults that approach them. Adults should ask adults for help – NOT children! A fun way to reinforce this concept is to instruct them to keep at least three giant steps between themselves and someone they don’t know or who makes them feel uncomfortable.La pandémie actuelle nous a appris combien il est important de respecter la distanciation sociale et la règle de deux mètres. Lorsqu’on parle de distanciation sociale avec les enfants, nous vous encourageons également à leur faire comprendre qu’ils ne sont pas obligés de parler avec des adultes qui les approchent. Un adulte devrait toujours demander de l’aide à un autre adulte; pas à un enfant! Une manière amusante d’intégrer cette notion est de leur apprendre à garder trois pas de géant entre eux et une personne qu’ils ne connaissent pas ou qui les rend inconfortables. ...
