SCREEN Program

SCREEN is a community-based resilience and capacity-building program to prevent youth radicalization and violence.

BCFC is grateful to the Aurora Family Therapy Centre for funding the project, and to our partners, the Kurdish Initiative For Refugees & Rahma Community and Youth Centre.

Program Overview

The Program is designed to strengthen youth resiliency, provide safe spaces for free expression, and to promote integration and cross-cultural understanding between diverse community groups.

The key components of the program are:

  • Mentorship
  • Leadership
  • Civic Engagement
  • Coaching, intercultural dialogue
  • Personal wellness
  • Mental health

The program utilizes a variety of context-sensitive methods to engage youth meaningfully.

The Program is delivered as an after-school program Monday to Friday and Saturdays.

Elders and spiritual leaders are invited to help improve cultural, traditional, and religious literacy. It creates a platform where youth can challenge stereotypes that render Islam and violent extremism interchangeable and nurtures media literacy among youth to help minimize the internet’s role as a driver of radicalization and polarization.

The SCREEN Program assists Winnipeg's Muslim youth and families understand their rights and responsibilities as Canadians.

SCREEN creates safe spaces where everyone, including disenfranchised youth, can air grievances and bond to create support networks.

The SCREEN program improves relationships between law enforcement and the immigrants, Newcomer, Minority, and Muslim communities by providing opportunities for positive interaction.
