Strength, Masculinities, And Sexual Health


SMASH is a program that educates about sexual and mental health and helps youth define their own masculinity


A SMASH workshop isn’t like a normal school day. It’s exciting, fun, and engaging. Youth don’t just learn about sexual health – they learn about themselves, their own well-being, and gain confidence in the decisions that they make in their lives.

Peer Leader Retreats

Young men and gender diverse youth aged 13-17 from across the NWT are invited to join the SMASH team for a week of sexual health education, learning about healthy relationships, the arts, leadership, and self-empowerment.

Retreat Applications

Applications for the 2020 Retreat at Blachford Lake Lodge are now closed. Applications for our summer 2021 Peer Leader Retreat will be available in May 2021.
