Aboriginal Shield Program
The Aboriginal Shield Program is a substance abuse prevention initiative designed specifically for Aboriginal youth. The program content was developed in partnership with the Nechi Institute on Alcohol and Drug Education and is designed to supplement existing substance abuse education programs. The NGWAAGAN GAMIG (Rainbow Lodge) may use this culturally-specific package to educate Aboriginal youth about substance abuse issues.
Resource material for the program consists of four teaching modules — Aboriginal culture, substance abuse, prevention, and informed and responsible decision-making.
