PreVenture – A Youth Mental Wellness Program

What is PreVenture and how do I participate?

PreVenture is a mental wellness program for youth (age 12 to 18 years). The program aims to help you get to know yourself better, set long-term goals, and learn new skills to help you achieve your goals. The program recognizes the importance of individual differences in how you understand and cope with different types of life challenges. PreVenture is tailored to different personality and coping styles so it can be more relevant to your own experiences.

What do I need to do?

The first step involves filling out a brief questionnaire to match you with the workshop that fits your personality style best and our consent form. You will then attend two 90-minute PreVenture workshop sessions.

Once you have attended both sessions you will have the option to share any feedback that you have about PreVenture in a satisfaction survey. Participation in PreVenture is voluntary and you can choose to stop participating at any time.

What information is collected about me?

Through the PreVenture Questionnaire, we will collect your:

  • Overall questionnaire results that match you with a PreVenture workshop. Note: we do not have access to your individual responses for each question and will only see which personality style(s) you fit best
  • First and last name
  • Contact information (e.g. phone number and email address)
  • Birth month and year
  • Sex assigned at birth (on your birth certificate)
  • Gender
  • Location (city)

Why is this information needed?

The PreVenture workshops in your area will be delivered by the Maltby Centre in partnership with [additional organizations]. Those supporting PreVenture at the Maltby Centre will have access to your information and may share your results from the PreVenture questionnaire with partner agencies to plan for your participation in the PreVenture workshops. However, we are the only organization
accessing your identifiable information (e.g. name, contact information).

We also share information about participation in PreVenture with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The online PreVenture Questionnaire is operated by the Centre hospitalier universitaire (CHU) Sainte-Justine in Quebec and they will securely store your information. Information shared with CAMH and CHU Sainte-Justine will be summarized among all participants and will not include any identifiable information. This information will be used to support further development of PreVenture and to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.

Who do I contact if I have questions or concerns?

If you have any questions or concerns about your participation in PreVenture, would like access to your results and answers to the PreVenture Questionnaire, or to no longer participate in PreVenture, please let us know.
