A Second Application Period to Open

November 1, 2016 –

A second opportunity to apply for the SAYCW Healthy Schools and Communities Grant will be available in early 2017.

The application period will open on January 16 and close on February 28, 2017.

The second application period is separate from the first.  Applicants who are not awarded funds for the first application period are welcome to apply for funds January 16 – February 28, 2017. Work with the Community Action Coordinator to strengthen your application.

Please note: because the SAYCW Youth Health Survey provincial report will be released in time for the second application period, we will reinstate our original requirement that applicants must relate their action or initiative to the SAYCW Youth Health Survey. Information from one or more school, school division, health region or provincial report should help determine priority areas for action.

Support youth and community well-being through the collaborative action of community partners working together. Through evidence, tools and resources, SAYCW supports stakeholders to turn the knowledge gained through the youth health survey into health promoting action.

This report provides a brief review of the scientific literature on COVID-19 and its effects on youth health, with particular emphasis on mental health.  SAYCW shares relevant data from the pre-pandemic, 2019 SAYCW survey – these findings show how stressors and unhealthy behaviours that have been worsened by the pandemic (e.g., worry, connection with others, screen time, etc.) had impacted Saskatchewan youths’ health and well-being prior to the pandemic. Suggested health promotion actions to help mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and improve youth health and well-being are also shared.
