We are glad to invite Bosco Poon to share his story to youths at IYSS.

Bosco Poon’s choice to pursue gang involvement landed him in prison, right where God was waiting for him.

B.O.Z was once locked up behind bars and lost all hope. Here’s a story that tells us the events that took place, and the outcomes that followed. It’s an inspiring life changing miracle.

【明報專訊】由加拿大青年領袖中心和皇家騎警毒品及有組織罪案認知服務組主辦的2011年「加拿大青少年無毒品計劃」昨日宣布正式展開。此次活動邀請到11名來自香港基督教正生書院的學生來「現身說法」,與本地學生及家長等分享他們吸毒、戒毒的經歷,讓更多的年輕人認識到毒品的危害,也讓更多的人參與抵制毒品的行列中。

香港正生書院是專門接受誤入歧途的青少年,幫助他們回到生活正軌的學校。此次11名學生中大部分人有吸毒或販毒的經歷。在他們來列市訪問的兩個星期內,將會和本地學生分享他們的故事,希望他們能引以為戒,選擇正確的人生道路。

中心行政總監何詩韻表示,愈來愈多的青少年開始接觸毒品,學校內吸毒、販毒的現象也屢見不鮮,如何幫助學生建立正確的人生價值觀,充分認識到毒品的危害非常重要。「誰都會犯錯,但是犯錯要付出相應的代價」,希望他們從這些「過來人」的身上得到啟發,少走彎路,莫誤入歧途。

有組織罪案認知服務組的警長蔡本傑說,防止青少年吸毒工作單靠警方的力量是不夠的,需要社會各界一起努力,整個社區從不同方面給予青少年正確的信息,才能讓現在的年輕人認識到毒品的危害,和防止吸食毒品的重要性。開展青少年無毒品計劃,讓同齡人分享親身經歷,是非常有意義的一步。

該活動受到列市政府、列治文教育局、皇家騎警及社區各界的大力支持,活動還將開放同家長的會面及開展公共論壇,讓更多的人加入到青少年無毒品計劃中。

In a show of unity, representatives from the RCMP, the City of Richmond, the Richmond School District and Scout Canada showed support for a new initiative aimed at helping kids stay off drugs.

The Canadian Youth Drug-Free Project, the brain child of the Integrated Youth Services Society (IYSS), will see a group of students from Hong Kong visit Grade 8 and 9 students in Richmond to talk about drugs.

And the visiting teens know what they’re talking about. All are former drug addicts currently attending Christian Zheng Sheng College, a one-of-a-kind accredited high school in Hong Kong. Its students are all referrals from social workers and the judicial system.

"It is an extremely successful program," said Esther Ho, executive director of IYSS.

Before immigrating to Canada, Ho was a social worker in Hong Kong and worked with many youth who attended the school.

"Their success rate for keeping kids off drugs is very high."

Moreover, the school has an excellent academic program, making employers eager to hire its graduates, said Ho.

The combination of academics and drug treatment makes the school unique as does the fact students and staff all live on the campus, creating an cohesive, supportive environment.

While there is no such school here, the concept of integration is well understood to be fundamental in helping kids make healthy choices, said Const. Tammy-Lyn Walker, a Richmond RCMP officer who runs the D.A.R.E program in Richmond’s elementary schools.

D.A.R.E. teaches Grade 5 students about what drugs can do to one’s body, but more importantly it coaches them in how to make positive decisions.

By while cops in schools can help some kids stay on track, for others the message hits closer to home when it’s coming from a peer, which is why Ho thinks the Drug-Free Project, in which kids who have been there and back, talk to local students, will be effective.

"This is our hope that through their stories, the tragedy of what can happen when dealing with drugs, and the testimonies of coming out of that lifestyle can be a positive influence and inspiration to the teenagers (here.)"

The youth will be in Richmond for two weeks from Feb. 12-27. In that time they will speak with various school and Scout groups.

Helping youth stay clean, however, isn’t done just by telling them what not to do. It’s also done by providing positive things to do, said Krista Germyn, a leader with the city’s youth services department.

Richmond trustee Chak Au said the same is for parents, it’s not just about tell your kids not to do drugs, it’s about being engaged in their lives.

Airfare for the students will be paid for by their school, while IYSS will cover their costs while here.

鑑於有調查顯示11%大溫青少年吸毒,一個青少年綜合服務組織與皇家騎警聯同多家構構,合辦加拿大青年無毒品計劃,邀請專輔導青少年戒毒的香港正生書院18師生到訪大溫,與本地學生及家長交流;並向社工服務界,推介像正生書院這種全方位的輔導服務。    主辦機構加拿大青年領袖中心(IYSS)及騎警毒品及幫派認知服務部門(DOCAS),聯同協辦團體烈治文教育局、烈治文市政府及加拿大童軍等代表,周二在烈治文召開記者會。

加拿大青年領袖中心行政總監何詩韻表示,據該中心2009至2010年向500個大溫青少年所做調查發現,11%受訪者有吸毒習慣,最年輕的10歲;另外50%受訪者稱知道有朋友吸毒。何詩韻說,情況十分嚴重。她更指13及16歲是可能染毒的高危年齡。
