Summer 2020 Summary

Summer School Youville Centre – Ottawa July 2-23, 2020.

Once again this year, through a partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board’s Continuing Education Department, Youville Centre was provided with four teachers who delivered virtual summer school programs during the month of July.

This year, students were able to select one academic course from four student-driven options that best met their academic needs, as well as their personal interests. Courses offered were divided into four areas; business/ entrepreneurship, leadership/ healthy living, indigenous studies/ art and English/ success skills. Each of these courses allowed our students to earn another credit toward their high school diploma (OSSD).

In addition to our academic programming, a virtual youth engagement group was offered weekly. Fantastic Friday’s gave clients an opportunity to connect with their peers and treatment/ academic supports.

During summer school, as clients did not have access to our on-site food bank and YouStore, our Intensive Treatment Support staff delivered necessities to all clients.
