The Enrichment Program is a free, personalized, solution-focused counselling program that supports youth and parents in building life skills and connections to the community. We also promote the development of strategies specific to individual needs.
We strive to create an environment where participants can experience successes, feel safe and respected, realize strengths, feel empowered, and feel connected. We can offer support for parenting skills, conflict resolution, anger management, home management/routines, self-esteem and self-confidence, friends/family/school concerns, etc.
We offer weekly, solution-focused individual counselling that focuses on your specific needs. For short-term assistance, we can offer conflict resolution or mediation between family members.
We offer a weekly, educational parenting group with a focus on positive parenting and relationship building, providing the opportunity to learn and share experiences in a supportive setting. Parents must complete an intake with the Program Director before attending.
We offer a weekly youth group with a focus on youth building skills in a fun, interactive, and supportive environment. Youth must complete an intake with the Program Director before attending.
