Students in Steps2Success gain academic credits and self-care tools needed to graduate high school
For many young people in our communities, the dangers of violence, drugs and poverty makes graduating from high school a pipe dream. Steps2Success changes that.
As part of the TDSB’s Education and Community Partnership Program, Steps2Success is offered in a safe, inclusive space outside of school where students are comfortable and empowered to learn. Students are reintegrated into a learning environment to gain their high school credits while receiving holistic care for trauma, mental health, harm reduction, and self-care.
With a dedicated TDSB teacher who specializes in guidance and special education, and a youth worker from The Neighbourhood Group Community Services, young people benefit from compassion, enthusiasm, expertise, and experience.
“As a classroom teacher for over 10+years now I can say that having TNGCS staff in my class has been fantastic. They have a real “gift” in being able to connect, relate and build a rapport with students. They are patient, kind and encouraging which helps to create a trusting and safe environment where students can thrive and reach their academic goals.” - Michael Gibson, OCT, Special Education Teacher, Toronto District School Board
