Service Provider Manual & Activities Binder
Developed to supplement the Teen Talk Service Provider Training, the Teen Talk Service Provider Manual focuses on sexual and mental health (including substance use), and dating relationships. The manual contains background information on each topic, strategies for working with youth, information for youth in Northern communities, resources, and Indigenous voices touching on cultural teachings and decolonizing strategies.

We recommend reviewing this manual before using the Teen Talk Activities Binder or Tool Kit as the information helps to create a bigger picture of the issues that face youth. The Teen Talk Activities Binder and Tool Kit is available to educators and service providers who are looking for activities for youth. Print double-sided or use as needed to build or supplement educational sessions. Most activities are easy to run and require very few additional resources.
