Role of the Youth Outreach Consultant
This service was created to re-engage at-risk students of dropping out by providing support to schools, students and families at critical points in their schooling. High school teams identify students who are not regularly attending school and for whom alternative strategies need to be explored. The FSSTT Youth Outreach Consultant works with all LBPSB high schools to:
- Work with the student and family to develop and implement a plan to re-engage them in school.
- Collaborate with the school team to explore alternative strategies and help to facilitate successful transitions.
- Collaborate with the Continuing Education Transition Consultant and community partners to provide additional
support services to students and their families, as required.
- Support students in the Transition Learning Centre (TLC) to gradually reintegrate into their home school (or another school setting). Often these students are unable to cope with a regular school day due to emotional, behavioral or medical reasons. To make a referral for TLC, the Youth Outreach Consultant must be contacted for a case discussion.
