Community School

Community Schools Team

The central purpose of the Community Schools Team (CST) is to provide programming and interventions for children and youth in three streams: academic support, social-emotional functioning, and community connectedness and engagement. Each team includes a Community Schools Coordinator, Teacher, Youth and Family Worker and Activity Programmer(s). These teams of professionals work in one or more “families of schools”, that is secondary school and its neighbouring elementary schools, to deliver in-school and out-of-school time programs and services. The CSTs offer a variety of programming including targeted small groups, universal access programs, and some large scale special events.
