Purpose: Edmonton Youth for Christ Society will expand its ReBuild Youth Mechanics Program to include youth entrenched in the justice system and involved in, or vulnerable to, gang activity. The program will provide a hands on mechanics experience, mentorship and life skills training and will enable youth to acquire mechanic and customer service skills necessary for employment in an entry level position in the automotive industry. Youth will also meet bi-weekly with a mentor to address barriers to success and the factors that led to gang involvement; to assist them in re-enrollment in school; and to connect them with other community resources. This will lead to positive changes such as continued education and employment, reintegration and deterring from gang affiliation and criminal activity.
