Re-Engagement Intervention Program
Mission: The Re-engagement Program's primary mission is to provide youth with a safe, caring and responsive environment that develops and fosters a sense of school engagement. Support services and case management focuses on ensuring success for the entire family unit.
- Staff/students/families work together in relationships based on equality and respect.
- Staff enhances student and families’ capacity to support their growth and development educationally and otherwise.
- Student/family support is strength based, building on existing individual, family, community and cultural abilities and vitalities.
- Programs are embedded in their communities and contribute to the community-building process.
- Programs advocate with students/families for services and systems that are fair, responsive, and accountable to the student/families served.
