Street Culture Outreach Programming Experience
Street Culture's evening program provides regular pro-social activities to engage youth with the community and agency. The nightly program includes recreational, artistic, social and resource based programming. Evening program is open to all Street Culture Project affiliated youth and runs weekly from 6:00PM-9:00PM.
Street Culture is proud to offer youth quick connections to culturally appropriate resources. Our Cultural Liaison works closely with community members and elders to develop weekly programming, community resources and agency events. SCP hosts monthly sweats at Kawacatoose First Nation and attends a wide variety of ceremonies and teachings each month.
SCP's weekly music night runs through GLinn every Wednesday at 5:00PM with supper included. Youth can create their own lyrics and music and even record in our studio. Music night is put on through the RCY program and is drop-in based. Check out some our finished music projects!

Soup In Park (SIP)
The Soup in the Park Program was started in 2013 as a solution focused partnership between Street Culture Project, City of Regina, Regina Downtown Business Association, and the Regina City Police. The partnership was made to create a resource for street involved people, with the intention of providing a higher level of safety for evening, downtown shoppers.
Soup in the Park is funded through the City of Regina's Business Improvement District (BID). SIP is located in Regina’s downtown plaza at Victoria Park during the months of March through October, weather permitting. Street Culture's SIP provides all downtown residents with nutritional soup and a connection to community resources such as health and addiction services as well as housing and shelters.
Street Culture has further improved the program through partnerships with post-secondary institutions. SIP offers students within the nursing programs at the U of R, Sask Polytechnic, and U of S opportunities to provide on-the-spot medical observations.
The increased need has become apparent. The number of individual visitors grew by 12% after the first year, however the frequency of eating increased by 376%. This states where the average visitor consumed around 2.7 cups of soup in 2014, the average consumption was 8.7 cups in 2015. For this reason, Street Culture Project views SIP as a vital and sustainable program.
