Jo(e) Youth Creative. First-of-its-kind social media learning space for kids AND adults.

Published on

Written by Joe Whitbread

Despite a pandemic & economic uncertainty, (and even health issues) Jo Phillips and I are pretty proud to have successfully opened a whole new business, alongside what we’ve already accomplished at Joe Social Media Inc. and even created Summer jobs while we’re at it.
  
Have you heard of Jo(e) Youth Creative yet? You will.
Every adult knows or has some amazing, creative kids, that love to perform, create, draw, dance, produce, direct or play. These kids are using their devices, cameras and social channels to share cool content, to watch creators around the world, to learn and to communicate positively with their friends.
Kids are generating remarkable online channels and content but most adults keep them at arms length, based on fear or lack of knowledge. This is leaving good kids, who see obvious digital opportunities and fun, right in front of them, without permission to explore or achieve. These misconceived notions from parents, of what kids are actually doing online, is creating untrust and misunderstandings, because the internet and almost all media you see, tells us kids are doing terrible things online.
Joe Youth Creative is a first-of-its-kind, safe mentorship and learning space for kids! But it’s also for you!
Adults, seniors and kids have got to get on the same page when it comes to digital learning.
We’re running Summer camps and clubs in TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and many other unique social media opportunities for kids. (Space is very limited, due to Covid restrictions & we practice ALL health and safety guidelines).
We also have social media training and learning for adults and seniors.
Jo(e) isn’t about adding more screen time for your family, it’s about mentoring safe use, developing confident kids, fostering creativity, empowering youngsters to openly talk about the digital things they love at home, and even creating entrepreneurship opportunities, on amazing platforms, that have never been exposed or explored before, due to the negativity that surrounds every breath about social media in our world.
Jo and I have done our research, by touring in schools and speaking with 10’s of thousands of kids, parents, teachers, educators and experts.
We’re trusted, across the province, in our field.
We know there are plenty of good kids, doing great things online and we are desperately trying to support them, in what they’re doing, instead of banning and forbidding them from places adults admittedly know little about.
Please like our pages and check out our clubs, camps and courses. I’m wide open to any and all of your questions.

Drugs, Guns Seized in Innisfail

A short-term investigation by ALERT’s Red Deer organized crime team has resulted in the seizure of a wide variety of drugs from a home in Innisfail. Two women were arrested.

The two-week investigation wrapped up on June 25, 2020, as ALERT investigators executed a search warrant at a house in the 4000 block of 48 Avenue in Innisfail. Assistance was provided by Innisfail RCMP.

Once inside, investigators seized more than $23,000 worth of drugs and cash, including:

  • 47 grams of fentanyl powder;
  • 146 grams of methamphetamine;
  • 18 grams of cocaine;
  • 445 millilitres of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB);
  • 8 blotters of LSD;
  • 198 illicit prescription pills;
  • 13.9 grams of cannabis resin; and
  • $1,750 cash proceeds of crime.

Two .22-calibre rifles — one of which had the barrel sawed off — and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were also seized.

“The wide variety of drugs seized during this investigation is remarkable, especially for a town such as Innisfail,” said Insp. Sean Boser, ALERT Regional Teams. “Being able to act quickly to get drugs and firearms out of these suspects’ hands is a big win for community safety.”

“Having a partner like ALERT, who we can collaborate with on investigations like this one, is invaluable,” said Staff Sgt. Chris Matechuk, Innisfail RCMP detachment commander. “The drug trade and associated violence are problems that are not confined to urban centres. We will use every resource at our disposal to keep our community safe.”

Pamela Jacobson, 43, and Keanna Chuhaniuk, 24, are each charged with:

  • possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x5);
  • possession of proceeds of crime;
  • careless use of a firearm (x2);
  • unauthorized possession of a firearm;
  • possession of a prohibited firearm; and
  • possession of a weapon obtained by crime.

Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers is always anonymous.

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime.
