TVCC youth have been through a lot in the last two years with disruptions to education, services, leisure programs, and recreation opportunities. At a time when teens should be building relationships and independence, youth were kept home and isolated.
We know this has left a lot of you with feelings of stress and anxiety, and that these feelings are felt through the entire family. TVCC wants to help rebuild your family's sense of well-being through a new program that will address the core areas of mental wellness: Connection, Activity, Mindfulness, and New Skills. This is for you - TVCC youth, parents/caregivers, and siblings.
The Wellness Project offers:
- Resources, tips, and guides for youth and families *Coming Soon
- Online education workshops, participation groups, chats, and group fun for youth, youth-aged siblings, and the adults that support them
- In person education workshops, participation groups, chats, and group fun for youth, youth-aged siblings, and the adults that support them
We are ready to support all youth with participation in The Wellness Project. If you have questions about how you/your youth can participate, please contact us.
Access to Services
The Wellness Project is available to all TVCC youth (age 12+), their caregivers/parents, and any siblings who are also 12+. Families must live in London/Middlesex, Elgin, Oxford, Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce counties to participate.
