Peer Mediation And Skills Training (PMAST) & Shaw Birdies for Kids—presented by AltaLink (BFK)

 

It’s 2020 and although the Shaw Charity Classic, one of the largest and most successful events held in the City of Calgary HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS YEAR, THE FUND RAISING CONTINUES.  Did you know that Calgary ranks at the top of funds raised for charity at any PGA Tour Champions event?  In it’s 7 years of existence, this tournament has raised over $48 million for Alberta charities supporting our youth and children, including the programs offered by Peer Mediation And Skills Training. This year, even with the existence of COVID19, Alberta charities are still able to augment funds raised through the generous donations from the tournament supporters.

Funds raised for PMAST through BFK will help us to provide life skills to more Calgary and area youth, their schools, families and communities.  This training provides youth with life skills in conflict management and communication skills, helping them to build better relationships in all aspects of their lives.  It brings youth together to create change to reduce and eliminating bullying and deal with issues affecting their mental and emotional health and wellness.  The funds raised in 2019 help us provide programs to assist immigrant and refugee youth in their transition into Calgary high schools and their new communities.

It helped us to provide programs to junior high school students which deal with issues of bullying and conflict which are two of the most important issues facing youth today and social media has just increased that exponentially. While PMAST agrees that counselling and bullying awareness programs are important – they are not enough. To really create change for today and tomorrow, we need to be pro-active and teach our youth how to successfully deal with the conflict in their lives. We need to change the dynamics of these youth, their families and those around them for this and future generations.

We need your support!   In order to provide this service to Calgary and area youth we need funds for program delivery.  The schools do not have the funds.  You can help provide these services to our youth.  This is your opportunity to make your dollars count—BFK adds an additional 50% for every dollar donated to PMAST.
