Youth Education

Guide to High School supports Grade 7 students in their transition to high school with a focus on social and emotional health. 

Students connect on Zoom with other Grade 7 students for group discussions and activities about social media, managing stress, making friends, resisting peer pressure, standing up to bullying, and other topics related to the high school experience.

Please note that information about specific high schools is not provided. The program instead focuses on the general high school experience and the challenges and opportunities that students may face.

Sessions will be conducted live over Zoom by YWCA staff.

**All fall program sessions are now full. Complete the form to join the waitlist for our spring program session.**
