Secondary school programs

Our Youth Services team works in partnership with other youth service providers to develop programs that address the needs of young people and their families.

Our secondary school programs are tailored to help support young people to make informed decisions about a range of issues through interactive and youth-friendly activities.

We are responsive to the needs of young people. If there is a specific issue at your school that you would like addressed, we may tailor a program to meet those needs. While all attempts are made to meet the needs of your school, there may be times when we are at full capacity and cannot create tailored programs.
