Our Approach

Calling our youth up to courage by offering:

 

Social
Emotional
Ethical Competencies

Along with social and emotional learning, CFY programs are in alignment with the BC Health and Career Education rationale (K to 7).

“ To provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be informed decision makers and make healthy and safe choices."

Some of the skills we teach are:

 • Identify characteristics of healthy relationships and unhealthy relationships

 • Recognizing and responding to stereotyping, discrimination and bullying

 • Assess the influence that peers and media have on individuals’

attitudes and behavior

 • Identify strategies for safe use of wireless and online communications

 • Strategies for decision-making and evaluating consequences

 • Promote a safe and caring school community

Emotional Intelligence is a skill that can be learned and improved."

(Emotional Intelligence;
Daniel Goleman)

They aim to empower children to become confident in themselves and believe in their own self-worth.  As well, they emphasize that every child is different and they work to support every individual strength in order to build character."

Peter Gallo, Vice-Principal, George Pringle Elementary School

Voices has been a great opportunity for our female students to talk freely with other females. The Voices leaders are great role models and because they do not normally work in the school, our young ladies feel much more open to sharing some of their experiences. Learning how to develop relationships with other people is one of the most important life skills and the Voices program really helps our female students to become stronger young ladies.  We would strongly recommend their program for your school."
