Education Outreach Program
What is it?
The Education Outreach Program assists students, who are not regularly attending high school, along their educational path.
This program is designed to engage and empower young members of our community, recognizing that every student has unique needs and learning styles. The Education Outreach classroom offers a safe, respectful environment, while facilitating activities, courses, cultural experiences and conversations necessary for lifelong learning.
How does it work?
Students work in a self-paced, individualized learning program, using curriculum accredited by the Yukon Department of Education.
Individual programs may include assistance with high school graduation, blended programming with Robert Service School, GED studies, Adult High School Graduation Certificate, trades introduction, work experience, job shadowing, community service, leadership, life skills, First Nations culture, field trips, student exchange, and much more. The Education Outreach classroom is located in the TH Health and Social Department Building, but much of the learning also takes place outside the classroom – within the community and on the land.
Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, Robert Service School and the Yukon Government are excited to offer this learning alternative for students in the community. We are striving to create a supportive and successful environment and model for our youth.
