Do you have questions about life after high school? Do you need help figuring out what you are interested in? Are you wondering what supports are out there in the adult world? Have you thought about college? Getting a job? Volunteering? What are you going to do for fun, to be healthy and stay connected with your community? What skills are you going to need to learn as you develop more independence?
If you are a student, or support a student between the ages of 12 and 21 (if still in school) Youth Discovery is here to be a part of that discussion as you explore interests, values, hopes and the opportunities for the future.
Youth Discovery (YD) Service offers workshops, drop-in conversations and resources, and individual consultation and coaching as needed.

This service is available to TVCC clients 12 years to 21 years of age (if still in school). Email youthdiscovery [at] tvcc.on.ca or call Kim Benincasa at 519-685-8700 ext 54089
What to Expect
The Youth Discovery team are available to meet with you by phone, at home, school, TVCC offices across the counties, or any other convenient community location. As you and your family know yourself best, we anticipate you connecting with us when needed during the transition years.
