Teaching beyond the curriculum.

As a child and teenager, life revolves around school. Whether it is friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, or schoolwork itself, school sometimes provides as much hardship as it does support among adolescents.

In partnership with local schools boards, we offer programs to help school-aged children deal with issues common to their age group. These programs are held at local schools and provide a place to come for support, and an opportunity to grow relationships within their families, schools, and communities.
