School Settlement Program Overview

The YMCA has been working in partnership with schools in our community since 1992. These partnerships have been effective in providing assistance and meeting the needs of immigrant children, youth and their families. Our staff works on site at 28 elementary, junior and senior high schools in the Halifax Regional Municipality to provide practical assistance to our clients.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Orientation to the School and Community
  • Solution-focused counseling
  • Home Liaison
  • Academic Support
  • Service Support
  • Asset Building
  • Referrals
  • Advocacy
  • School Staff Support

These partnerships have proved valuable with personal input from all members of the school community, youth, parents, teachers, administrators and the school principals.
