A very important portfolio of the Odd Squad is the Junior Hockey Mentorship Program. Since 1997 we have been working together with several Junior Hockey teams and the respective police education programs, to share valuable information on the perils of drugs, substance abuse, gangs, and other community issues.
We would like to invite your team and local police service to join forces to create a program, specially designed to suit the needs of your community. Your program should include 4-6 team leaders, hand-selected by the coaching and management staff of your team that are willing to engage their peers.
YOUR EXPERIENCE WILL INCLUDE:
- Lectures from leaders in the field of dangerous drugs and gang activity.
- Practical field exercises in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
- The Odd Squad will prepare players to mentor youth in their communities.
- The Odd Squad will provide a presentation template that’s designed specifically for your program.
- Reservation assistance with your stay in Vancouver, B.C.
Arrange to raise the required financial sponsorship in order to effectively fund your program. The Odd Squad charitable foundation is requesting a $1000 cash donation to assist with office overhead in Vancouver. (Charitable Receipt Will Be Issued).
In partnership with your local police and sponsors, commit to follow through in your commitment to educate youth in your community.
We operate a 2100 square foot facility, located in the heart of the Downtown Eastside; including a classroom with the perfect multi-media setup to deliver our cutting edge, audio visual presentations. We rely on private and corporate donations to keep our facility up and running throughout the year.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
