2020 Youth Education Workshops:
In-Person and Online

Self-Esteem In-Person Workshops

FTP will be offering two in-person workshops starting in November at The Centre (in The Lounge) in Orangeville;  four sessions are available for each. Registrants can sign up for all or just some of the sessions.

Self-Esteem workshop for youth ages 11-13
November 10-December 1 | 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

Self-Esteem workshop for youth ages 13-15
November 18-December 9 | 4:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m.


Each group will explore the meaning of self-esteem and the factors that can have a positive or negative impact on an individual’s self-esteem. Participants will engage in interactive activities and discussions about relationships, the media and diversity. This group will give participants new skills that can be used to build self-esteem and become more hopeful and resilient; skills needed in this ever-changing world.

Session 1: Relationships and Self-Esteem
Session 2: The Media and Self-Esteem
Session 3: Diversity and Self-Esteem
Session 4: Building Self-Esteem

These workshops will give students an opportunity to socialize and participate in a safe group setting and are an alternative to regular extra-curricular activities that aren’t currently taking place. 

Workshop location:
The Centre
375 Hansen Blvd (workshops to take place in The Lounge)
Orangeville, ON L9W 0C2

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!

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.

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).
