Chilliwack Alternate Schools Program - Since September 2015, AnxietyBC has offered expertise to Middle and Secondary School educators and students of Chilliwack District's Alternate Education Program. Social anxiety is a constant challenge for many students, resulting in school avoidance and possible failure. The ultimate goal of this collaboration is to strengthen knowledge and skills of educators, outreach workers, and students about anxiety and anxiety management using resources from www.anxietyBC.com and the MindShift app. With additional funding we anticipate scaling up to other districts working with at risk and/or indigenous children and youth.
Our sponsors and partners include: Education Without Borders, the RBC Children's Mental Health Project, and Coast Capital Savings.
Education without Borders (EwB) is a Canadian non-profit created in 2002 that provides improved educational opportunities and facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world. Currently, EwB is working with township students in Gugulethu, South Africa and with Aboriginal students in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, Canada. Visit Education Without Borders website.
