Speaker | Mike Jenkins | Saskatoon Blades Hockey Club

Mike is the Marketing Director for the Saskatoon Blades. The Blades hockey organization has a mission statement that emphasizes commitment to the Saskatoon community. The Blades commit not only money to other charities but also a very significant amount of volunteer hours. They also promote education for their own players ... both in school and in equipping them for life. Any hockey player that plays even a year for the Blades will receive a scholarship for one year or more at school/university on completion.

The Blades believe that the youth in Saskatchewan are our future. Therefore they have various youth-oriented programs. The players work with the RCMP on various youth oriented activities such as drug and alcohol awareness programs. They actually spend time on the streets of Vancouver to witness life on the streets. They also work with the Saskatoon Safety Patroller School Program where they promote and reward young Patroller participants. The level of participation in the program has tripled over the last few years and the Blades are in part responsible for that.

The Blades have an on-ice mentoring program for Saskatchewan aboriginal youth living on reserves.

Mike ended off with announceents about some upcoming Blade games.
