Feature Story:
Outreach Education & Awareness Program

The Envision Counselling and Support Centre's Outreach Education and Awareness program offers presentations on healthy relationships and interpersonal violence in Weyburn, Estevan, and surrounding rural communities. Presentations are developed in-house, using the curriculum of the school division, and topics are chosen to reflect the age group and maturity of each grade. Based on best practices, the Outreach Educator visits each classroom three times with different presentations. “These are unique presentations specifically designed for students in our region. By visiting each classroom three times, the students have an opportunity to expand their knowledge of topics that may be new to them over a period of time as each presentation builds on the one previous,” shared Christa Daku, Executive Director.
