The B.E.A.T.S. Encounter
Building Expression & Awareness through Theatre & Sound
The B.E.A.T.S. Encounter is a therapeutic experience designed for at-risk youth that takes participants on an adventure through a variety of creative outlets. These include many forms of expression such as music, drama, dance, art, writing, fashion, and media production.
The B.E.A.T.S. Encounter strives to strategically connect students to their education in a fun way, exposing participants to healthy skills such as increased emotional/physical awareness, self-regulation skills, alternative means of expression & communication, linking interests to academics, and ultimately introducing viable career avenues.
The program involves a partnership between the Saskatchewan Health Region, Living Sky School Division and Sakewew High School. It draws on expertise and talent from the local community linking youth to accessible mentors.
The program is student-driven, professionally supported, and provides an attractive format that successfully engages at-risk youth in a healing and educational experience.
