The main purpose of KIP is the prevention of sexual assault incidents within the Indigenous juvenile population in Central Alberta. This involves evidence-based early intervention for issues including underlying childhood sexual behavior concerns.
By expanding educational resources and training programs in the school system for sexual assault awareness, specific program capacity is developed for serving Indigenous children who are at risk toward delinquent behaviours of a sexual nature.
We work with stakeholders, community members, and local Elders to develop responsive processes/protocols and compliance that strengthens advocacy and work directly with children who have suffered trauma or domestic violence. This includes identifying community and family supports to help children and youth thrive and continuing to support ongoing child sexual assault prevention efforts focused on protective factors for youth between the ages of 6-17.
