Our Youth Education Programs are designed to teach kids what healthy relationships are all about and to help eliminate violence in our communities. The curriculum for each program (offered from Grades 5 through 12) meet the Ontario Ministry of Education guidelines, are interactive, and include various forms of media to address all learning styles and engage students’ cognitive, behavioural and emotional learning processes.
Our programs also cover social and emotional learning strategies including the Healthy School framework, the Equity and Inclusive Education strategy, and the Safe School Strategy.
Since our Youth Education Program began in 2001, more than 50,000 students and over 40 schools have benefited from these skill-building, attitude changing programs!
Healthy relationship research shows that having healthy relationships builds self-esteem, improves mental and emotional health, and helps people live a fuller life.¹ Since 2001, FTP has reached thousands of kids through our Youth Education programs. These interactive and engaging programs strive to teach youth the importance of healthy, respectful relationships that are free of violence.
Our Youth Education Programs are largely funded by fundraised dollars. By investing in our programs, you are making a difference in the lives of youth in the Dufferin and Caledon communities.
Our educators have put together comprehensive packages for teachers to use to prepare and disseminate the information provided through the individual programs. Please visit this page to review each of these packages as needed.
We care about our work. Please help us make sure our programs are effective by telling us about your experience in our programs and how they have affected your classroom.
My World is one of our most popular programs. Approximately 8-10 students gather to discuss social issues or problems they are experiencing. This type of group provides learning that helps achieve a positive personal image, as well as independence through responsible decision making and problem solving (8 weeks).
For more information on future workshops, please contact Sabina at 519-942-4122, ext. 245, or email@example.com.
FTP also offers programming to parents and guardians to help them support their children as they navigate some of the challenges of growing up.
