SMASH (Strength, Masculinities, And Sexual Health) is excited to be hosting our fourth Peer Leader Retreat once again at Blachford Lake Lodge! We are looking forward to another great summer of arts, leadership, and excitement with our SMASH Peer Leaders! In this application, you’ll find forms to help you apply, and information to review with your parents, guardians, or teachers.

All expenses for participants, including travel from their home communities to Yellowknife, is covered through the generous support of the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Arctic Inspiration Prize, and our other sponsors. There is no charge to any participant in the SMASH Peer Leader Program.
Young men/male-identifying youth* aged 13-17 from the NWT are invited to join the SMASH team for 9 days of sexual and mental health education, learning about healthy relationships, the arts, leadership, and self-empowerment. Previous experience with the arts or artistic talent is not required, but we hope you will enjoy expressing yourself through digital storytelling, Inuit & Dene games, and other arts! While the emphasis will not be on strenuous activity, participants should be prepared to spend time outside and engage in some moderately physical activities like hiking and swimming. *Please note that youth of all gender identities are welcome at our FOXY/SMASH Retreats, and we encourage you to contact the Executive Director (Candice Lys) to discuss your individual needs if you are gender diverse or non-binary.
