SRP - School Reintegration Program

The YMCA School Reintegration Program provides the skills needed to attend, and become successful in a school learning environment. SRP is a free program for youth 11 to 18 who are struggling with school attendance or who are not currently registered in school.

What We Do at SRP

The YMCA School Reintegration Program (SRP) is a free service focused on providing support to youth aged 11-18 who are currently not making adequate attendance rates or are not registered for school at all due to different circumstances they are facing in their lives.
 
This program aims to re-establish students in the school environment and reduce the risk of potential relapse through positive transformational experiences, which nurture personal development and autonomy. This is so that students and their families are provided with the tools that will help them to reintegrate into the school environment successfully.

How to Be a part of the SRP

Those wishing to become a part of SRP must complete and return an intake form (below), which helps staff to identify why and in what areas each individual needs support. Referrals to the YMCA School Reintegration Program (SRP) can be made by anyone, including the client themselves.
 
Once a referral has been made and reviewed, staff, along with the referrer and/or youth wishing to participate in SRP, will meet either virtually or in-person to discuss better the student’s needs and what the program has to offer. Once completed, staff can register youth into a three-week cycle of the School Reintegration Program and begin offering support.

Support Offered by SRP

The YMCA School Reintegration Program aims to provide the necessary life skills needed by students to attend as well as become successful in a school or their learning environment. This includes small group support and individualized one-on-one support so that the needs of each specific student can be met.
 
Youth who enter the program gain knowledge in all areas of personal well-being; self-esteem, emotional regulation tools, anger management, anxiety and stress copying, and gaining motivation. Along with this, staff offer support in all areas that youth may need, such as; homework help, school tours and applying to school, communication skills, and help to find other programs youth may be interested in. SRP also offers skill-building workshops for the youth provided by different YMCA programs such as the Youth Cannabis Awareness Program (YCAP) as well as from the Youth Transitional Program (YTP) and through guest speakers from outside the YMCA staff. While in attendance at the School Reintegration Program, youth are supplied with breakfast and lunch, which high school students can help prepare meals to gain skills in cooking. As the YMCA staff recognizes that transportation is often a barrier many youths face, we can discuss transportation options for those registered into SRP.
 
Once a referral has been made and reviewed, staff, along with the referrer and/or youth wishing to participate in SRP, will meet either virtually or in-person to discuss better the student’s needs and what the program has to offer. Once completed, staff can register youth into a three-week cycle of the School Reintegration Program and begin offering support.
