Why Grade 6?

Grade 6 is a big year - full of changes. We want to help make it easier and more successful.

Studies have shown Grade 6 is the age in which a child is faced with many decisions, often with two options – a healthy one and an unhealthy one. We believe youth need a place to belong, to feel safe, and to explore and grow during the important developmental stage of their Grade 6 year. We want to support our youth in this critical time as they

      • age out of traditional care models
      • develop new interests
      • prepare for junior high

We intend to give Grade 6 youth opportunities around leadership, recreation, and holistic health. Our ability to promote and build healthy relationships will help youth

      • expand their pro-social networks
      • have opportunities to build healthy relationships with peers
      • establish relationships with positive, adult role models
