“Our students could benefit from these programs. They need opportunities to gain self-confidence and self-esteem and the sense of accomplishment that comes from working together. Programs that focus on team building, communication and problem solving will help create the necessary building blocks they will need for student success.”
- Tim DeActis, Retired Principal Alternative and Continuing Education, Lambton-Kent District School Board
“This is alternative education at its best. It’s not ropes, it’s hope. For some kids, scaling the wall may be the only success they have all year. It may make the difference between getting in trouble and asking for the help. This is the investment our youth need to become leaders.”
- Brian DeWagner, Coordinator YIELD program.
