When people feel a call to do something to impact the world, they often leave and do it somewhere else. In this video you'll see how we needed a bus, a plane and a boat to reach this community. You might be surprised where it is. There is no lack of need in our own backyard. Watch the video.
There are a lot of presentations out there that cover one topic, but in Robb's show they covered all the issues our teens were facing...

THE POWER OF STORIES
I first saw Robb Nash when I attended the Child and Youth Care Conference in Canmore in 2012. As someone who has been in the field of CYC for over 25 years, I recognized the value in what Robb was doing. I have seen first-hand the power in a young person suddenly feeling less isolated and alone when they hear someone else put words to their story, when they recognize that they are not the only one feeling or experiencing something. For that reason, the day after seeing the show, I chose to start to financially support the project through monthly donations . Yesterday, a year and a half later, I saw Robb and his crew put on a show for Lethbridge College. I saw how his message resonated with many of the young adults in the audience. So many people were positively impacted and lined up after the show to talk to Robb about what they took away from the experience. This just confirmed for me the original reason I choose to contribute to the project in the first place and reinforced my desire to continue to financially support the Robb Nash project. Well done to all that are a part of such an impactful experience.
In my five years of teaching, I’ve never seen such a well put together, more meaningful presentation. I just went on the website and made a donation. This is the first organization I have ever looked at and said "I need to help them out." more
