Focus on Youth

Dozens of GECDSB high school students work as custodians, camp counsellors, literacy tutors and hospitality aides each summer through Focus on Youth. Grants for this program are provided by the provincial government.

Focus-On-Youth.gifCommunity organizations who have been partners with the Board include: the City of Windsor, Community Living, the Essex Region Conservation Authority, Erie Wildlife Rescue, Learning Disabilities Association of Windsor, Ontario Clean Water Agency, the Leamington Mennonite Home and the YMCA.

Many of the students are employed by community organizations who have used our schools to provide high-quality summer programming opportunities for children.
