The Robb Nash Project engages young people through the power of music and words, encouraging them to make positive life choices and lead lives of significance and purpose. Following a life-threatening accident as a teenager, Robb Nash, lead singer and voice of the Robb Nash Project, experienced anger, self-doubt and depression. After working through these issues and recovering from signiﬁcant physical injuries, the highly acclaimed musician found his passion: connecting with young people with rock music and meaningful lyrics. Through personal stories, song and video, Robb sensitively deals with serious issues including drug and alcohol addiction, bullying, self-harm, depression and suicide. He inspires youth to stay hopeful, recognizes their unique strengths and makes positive choices. Audience feedback from students and educators consistently includes stories of remarkable personal breakthrough, a realization of self-worth and personal growth. The Robb Nash Project is a message of strength and hope at a time when many youths need it most.
We would like to give a HUGE thank you to our partners that made it possible to bring The Robb Nash Project to Bishop James Mahoney High School on December 2, 2016! With their contributions, we raised over $12,000.00 which will allow us to bring this inspirational message to more Saskatoon students next year as well as contribute to the very important work that the Restorative Action Program is doing on the ground in our local high schools!
Robb and his team again came to Saskatoon for 2 shows to spread his inspirational message. On February 7, 2018, Robb visited St. Joseph High School for a morning show then had an afternoon show at Bethlehem Catholic School. In the combination of both shows, Robb's message touched nearly 2000 students, and we are honoured to have been able to facilitate the spreading of his inspirational message.

The Rotary Clubs of Saskatoon support dedication of our protective services. Proceeds go to Rotary’s Restorative Action Program in Saskatoon high schools along with other Rotary community projects.
