With appreciation for over twenty years of service to this and other communities in the northern region of Nova Scotia, we would like to extend best wishes to Mr. Ron Kelly on his retirement from the New Leaf Program. Ron has been a valuable component of how our program has evolved over the years and his great passion for working with adolescent males to develop healthy attitudes about themselves and others will be missed. New Leaf wishes Ron well in the future.
New Leaf is also pleased to welcome Cathy Grant to the position of Director of the New Leaf Program. Cathy has currently served the New Leaf Program for over 17 years in several capacities and we feel confident moving into the future with Cathy taking on this leadership role.
We also would like to welcome Sterling Smith to the staff. Sterling has also served the New Leaf Program in several capacities for over five years, including sitting on the Board of Directors for much of that time.
New Leaf is currently in a time of transition and we feel very confident looking to the future.
Congratulations Ron, Cathy and Sterling.
The past several weeks since we completed the in school portion of the Changing Male Conversations Project Ron Kelly and Don Gunton have spent much time working on the evaluations and preparing reports.
There was some really great feedback from the young men about what they experienced as participants in the CMC. When asked if participating in CMC would affect some of their future choices 61% of the grade 7’s and 39% of the grade 9’s said that it would, and one of the comments was “It will affect my future because I will understand more about healthy relationships. The young men also told us that they wished the program was longer so we could spend more time talking about each topic.
We are very pleased that the participants found the program to be worth while and are excited to do it again next year with a new group of young men.
We would like to thank the United Way of Pictou County for partnering with us on this project as well as to staff and administration of West Pictou Consolidated and North Nova Education Centre for all their help making this year’s sessions such a success.
