Wake & Bake

Wake & Bake was an arts & health initiative that looked at the deeper reasons youth may be drawn into substance use. The project consisted of four main components: a theatre production, a post-play audience discussion, a health fair following each performance, and a supplemental learning resource

Through a partnership between Health Promotion Unit (HPU), Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS) and Yukon Educational Theatre (YET), along with funding from Health Canada, the Wake and Bake initiative set out to raise awareness amongst youth, families, schools and the larger community about the pressures, choices, influences and, at times, mixed messages facing our youth today.
