Through partnership with the Waterloo Regional District School Board, Ray of Hope offers a non-traditional approach to education for youth struggling through personal challenges, truancy or criminal activity. The school’s inviting and calming atmosphere provides a place where youth are able to learn at a pace that matches their learning capabilities. Teachers and community case workers are able to work one-on-one with each student, helping to develop an individual Education Plan that best suits their individual needs.
Ray of Hope staff also provides encouragement for each student, helping them work through the challenges of personal and family issues. Recreational activities strengthen a student’s ability to work in a team environment and help to encourage self-esteem. Our goal at Ray of Hope is to equip students with the essential skills and confidence they need to successfully transition back into the mainstream education system. Nearing graduation of the program, students receive assistance in transitioning back into the community through resumé writing skills and job placement experience.
