Toronto is not the only Canadian metropolis with a gun problem. Police across the country are seizing more and more handguns -- all of them illegal -- as the problem moves from gangs to what were once safe city streets.


December 30, 2005:
Jane Glenn Creba, 15
years-old, of Toronto was shot and killed when she wandered innocently into the middle of a gun battle by gang members.  In that battle 6 others were wounded including an Off-duty Police Officer.
One of the
Shooter - suspects is a 17 year old juvenile.


This conference and workshop will address these identified needs;


  1. more staff training in the areas of violence prevention and detection.
  2. high quality evaluations of policies and programs and good methods to report incidents of violence by our youth.


These programs are not only Theory based, International based in Research, but highly USABLE and PRACTICAL.  Individuals will have very specific tools that they can start using the next day.  These Programs are currently being utilized by youth orientated organizations from Canada, USA, Jamaica and into Europe. They address the areas of youth violence and what we can do to stem the tide in our Schools, homes and communities.

    Bullying Stops when Respect Begins

This workshop leads to Certification as a Trainer in this special program. It examines the 4 domains that support an environment of bullying, they are, The Bully, The Victim, The School and The Parent. It will also examine the role of the largest segment of those who support bullying: The "stand by and do nothings" or By-Stander. This program does not set forth punishment for bullying but rather replaces poor behavior with the positive character trait of Respect.

Workbook include as well.

Day 3 and 4. Train-the-Trainer: Assessing the Potentially Dangerous Student. What are the the Early and Immediate Warning Signs that Schools should know? If observed, what do they mean? How important is just one sign? In this workshop, these and many more questions will be answered. You will be Certified to use the Keys International Assessment Instrument, a unique tool that weighs the early and imminent warning signs and leads to identifying students who are in need of immediate intervention.  Upon completion, you will be Certified as a Trainer with the ability to return to your school to develop and train a Risk/Threat Assessment Team.
