RAP has a Gordon Bell high school classroom for pregnant and parenting females 14-19 years of age.  The young women in our classroom work towards their high school diploma with the support of the classroom teacher and two Case Managers. RAP offers Indigenous programming and activities, as well as other services including counselling, support accessing needed resources, support preparing for turning 18, and parenting information. There is a childcare lab. at Gordon Bell for RAP students to access if childcare is needed. A cash incentive and bus fare are also provided.     

Summer Program in Resources for Adolescent Parents (RAP) is focused on Indigenous culture. It is recreational, educational and experiential. This year it runs from July 12th to August 12th with five weeks of exciting activities planned. We have a community of mothers, supporting and learning from each other, who will participate in Circle of Security parenting classes and weekly Money Stories (facilitated by SEED Inc.). Other days the group will be tending to medicines, we’ve planted in our community garden, learning to bead, going to museums, visiting and learning about the Petroforms in the Whiteshell, swimming, learning ways to be safe and how to contribute to making our communities safe as well as learning about establishing healthy relationships.
