Community Schools: Safe, engaging and inclusive
Our community partners are vital in promoting the well-being of children, youth and families in our more vulnerable neighbourhoods. Our Community Schools program offers subsidized after-school programs and activities that build student connection to schools and strengthen our students’ success.
Community Schools is about embracing change, being open to new ideas, methods and processes. It is about greeting vulnerable children, youth and families with open arms and seeking out opportunities that will benefit individuals and the community as a whole. In partnership with community, Community Schools provide individuals the means to make inspiring changes in their lives.
