We are a non-profit organization working with our members towards building healthy communities through sport, culture and recreation
Parkland Valley Sport, Culture & Recreation District Coaching Project
Parkland Valley Sport, Culture & Recreation District and Parkland College have partnered together in this project. The purpose of this project is to assess factors that contribute to motivating factors of volunteer coaches in youth sport and recreation to continue or decline to coach at higher age levels. It should take no more than five minutes to complete.
Focus groups will be held at a later date, to be announced after results of the questionnaire have been analyzed. Attendance at these focus groups will be voluntary. Thank you for providing valuable information that contributes to the ongoing development of sport in our communities. Please only complete the survey once!
Responses will be accepted until March 30, 2018.

National Bank Room A at the Gallagher Centre, Yorkton SK
What to expect:
Yorkton Tribal Council Health & Social Development Department will be facilitating the Kairos Blanket Exercise which is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history we’re rarely taught. Developed in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples—which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation, the Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history in a one and a half hour participatory workshop. Participants take on the roles of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Standing on blankets that represent the land, they walk through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. They are directed by facilitators representing a narrator(s) and the European colonizers. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and
increases empathy. The exercise is followed by a talking circle in which participants have the opportunity to discuss the experience as a group.

National Bank C – Gallagher Center, Yorkton SK
This workshop begins with an overview of grant basics including understanding project descriptions and writing budgets. The main focus is an in depth look at how grants are adjudicated (or selected) by having workshop participants play the role of a selection jury, who must assess the applications based on a fictional provincial funding program. Participants gain an understanding of how funding applications are received and assessed by using a common adjudication model.
