Born out of the North Halton Youth – Hepatitis C Prevention Project (a one year pilot project), Peer Outreach Support Services & Education (POSSE) was the creation of several youth interested in learning youth driven, harm reduction and human rights peer outreach and support skills; two social community developers / youth workers with the ability to make it happen, and some special people and agencies to collaborate with us, to ensure it happened!
Our Vision: Youth promoting youth power.
Mission Statement: Peer Outreach Support Services & Education (POSSE) is a FREE service providing training, street level outreach, information and support to encourage safer decision making in reducing the risks associated with drug use, sex, homelessness, violence and discrimination. POSSE is a harm reduction and human rights project, run by youth for youth between the ages of 15-24, living in North Halton.
Our Philosopy and Value Statement: All youth have an inherent right to equality, dignity, safety, respect and their basic human rights regardless of age, race, class, gender, sexual orientation or any other distinguishing characteristics.
