Students attend Wayfinders after school several times a week and some weekends. Here, they work with our team to build study skills, contribute to their communities and discover their passions in a safe, welcoming environment.
Ultimately, they receive the personal, academic and financial support needed to make successful transitions into post-secondary education.
As part of the program, every Wayfinders student receives:
A Student Parent Support Worker who works with them and their family as an advocate at school and the program, encouraging them to achieve their academic and life goals
Homework support from a network of subject-specific volunteers, who work with them to improve achievement and explore new interests
Encouragement to invest in themselves through new life experiences
Opportunities to participate in activities that give back to and strengthen their communities
On-site daily food program
Mentorship opportunities and workplace experiences
$400 per year towards passion and talent development such as arts lessons, athletic equipment or fees, workshops and camps
$1000 per participation year (to a maximum of $4000) held in trust for education/post-secondary expenses after high school graduation
Quality education and extracurricular involvement come at a cost – we work to lessen that load for families who may not otherwise be able to provide such opportunities to their kids.
