This is a mentoring program that puts Calgary youth in contact with mentors and guides who can help them navigate a very difficult time in their lives.
As a mentor, you can work with a child who is struggling at home and or at school and help them gain valuable coping skills and life skills to better deal with their problems.
Essentially, you are helping them take their first steps towards independence.
The Servants Anonymous Society of Calgary (SAS) was formed in 1989 to address the issues of young women involved in or at risk of becoming involved in the sex trade.
Prostitution is not the only issue; so often it comes with homelessness, substance abuse and violence, and SAS takes a complete approach towards addressing these problems by transitioning these women back into society and into a healthy life.
The SAS will happily take donations, but it sorely needs volunteers.
To contact SAS directly, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
