(ACTS) Assisting the Community with Transitioning Students

The A.C.T.S. program (Assisting the Community with Transitioning Students) supports grade 5-7 students with the successful transition from elementary school to high school through Homework Clubs in four Burnaby schools (Edmonds, Armstrong, Stoney Creek and Cascade Heights), group activities and mentorship. The Homework Clubs include a healthy dinner and tutoring by trained high school volunteer mentors.  When dinner and homework are completed, they are able to participate in open gym time. The children benefit physically, emotionally, socially, and academically, while creating healthy relationships.  When they reach high school, they are more confident academically, and are received by familiar faces, and this contributes to a successful transition.
