Piloted in 2003, No Regrets was previously a high school based peer leadership program that trained staff advisers and student leaders to raise awareness and implement injury prevention activities and events in their schools. These activities and events were designed to promote at least one of the five key messages (Buckle Up, Look First, Wear the Gear, Get Trained, and Drive Sober) and influence the risk-taking behaviour of students related to activities such as: driving, biking, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and partying.
We have expanded the No Regrets program to increase our reach and targeted demographic to ages 13-24. No Regrets now targets Canadian youth across the board and inspires them to become leaders in injury prevention in their communities. While we continue to promote the program directly to high schools, we have also welcomed a wide variety of new potential participants in universities, colleges, youth groups, sports teams/organizations, etc.
New online resources have been developed for the No Regrets program including an online program registration system, training video, a program toolkit, special topics webinars, and an expansion of suggested activities and events. Many of these resources can be found in our new training portal, where participants can go to access all of the information they need to start and maintain their group. In addition to these online resources, participants in the No Regrets program can expect to be supplied with a variety of promotional items and a high level of support from program staff.
