Youth Education

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!

The benefits of social connections are numerous.  Proven links include lower rates of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem, greater empathy, and more trusting and cooperative relationships. Strong, healthy relationships can also help to strengthen your immune system, help you recover from disease, and may even lengthen your life.¹

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.

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).
