2020 Britannia Secondary: Outreach Alternative

Outreach Alternative  $10,000

Outreach is an Indigenous focused school where indigenous learning and curriculum are at the forefront of all our studies. In this program we are dedicated to meeting youth where they are at in all capacities of their lives.

Our primary purpose is to encourage students to participate and enjoy an educational experience however, a lot of our students require additional supports. As a result of financial hardship being a predominant issue for our student population . We require additional funding to provide basic needs – clothing, school supplies, field trip supplies, after-school recreational needs, food for school and home, hygiene supplies, clean and new bedding and sheets, laundry money and reaching way out there possibly young driver training.

All allowances would go toward the growth and development that comes with adolescents. An ideal allowance would be for clothing supports. As the youth grow and change so does their shoe and clothing sizes. We like to provide the basic necessities to our youth and at the same time reach for a higher level of support for all areas of their lives i.e. drivers training and other life skill building activities.

In other cases of need to cover any exceptional costs- many students do not have weather appropriate clothing or shoes- this could mean the school would be able to provide rain coats, rain boots, snow and winter gear as well as moving into warmer weather. It is important for the youth to be comfortable through the seasons.
