Sometimes school is not a positive experience. For some young people, their educational future can be in severe jeopardy. These and other behaviours related to school can be symptoms of emotional, social or family crisis.
Our Education Crisis Advisors (ECA’s) have the knowledge, expertise and experience to assist in supporting students in grades K-12 who are in crisis by:
– Getting to school
– Catching up on credits
– Finding alternative programs
– Advocating for them
– Connecting the student to therapy and mentorship
– Developing healthy school routines
Based on individual needs and abilities, the ECA may provide one-on-one educational support, transportation, help the student’s family and school work together to improve the school experience and make it more successful, or develop a plan to help a student ease back into a school setting.
