Teen Grief Peer Support Training

The Teen Grief Peer Support Training program has been tailored to provide grade 11 and 12 students with a basic introduction to grief & loss and practical hands-on skills, knowledge, and strategies to provide peer bereavement support to grieving children and teens. This course is experiential and will require participants to share on a personal level. Students will complete 20+ hours of training and 10 hours volunteering in some capacity for AHS. Combined, this 30 hours may be used to satisfy the Career Exploration component of the Career Life Connections course.

Applications are now closed for Fall 2022.  Contact District Coordinator Michelle Myers (michelle.myers [at] abbyschools.ca) to be notified of a Spring 2023 cohort.
