Peace River School Division Emotional Behavioral Supports

Peace River School Division provides a continuum of supports and services for all students in the jurisdiction. This includes Youth Education Support Workers and Success Coaches in schools. These individuals support students using universal supports (class presentations and resources on health promotion and wellness topics), targeted supports (group activities on topics such as grief and loss and social skills), and occasionally, more individualized supports to help a student access appropriate assistance in the school and/or community (examples: peer support group or mentor teacher in the school or community supports, such as addiction and mental health). These Youth Support positions are funded in a variety of ways, including funds from Peace Collaborative Services.Counseling-.jpg
