CanLearn Friends – New! Online Program for Schools
What a year it has been! Fortunately, the CanLearn Friends program is now available online for students. Friends online is a FREE program for students in grades 4, 5 and 6, focusing on developing positive relationships and coping skills.
Our facilitators work virtually with a group of twelve students selected by your school team. Students will learn and practice skills related to:
dealing with bullying and conflict
strategies for managing emotions
Since facilitators are conducting sessions virtually, the program requires a school staff member to be present in the classroom to assist with facilitating the sessions. The program is being offered once per week for 1 hour per session.
Sessions run for eight weeks, with groups running from January to March, April to June and October to December.
This video explains the Friends program to parents and teachers.
“I really loved how the program was planned. With a review and a calming strategy. It was very interactive even though we were doing everything online! Our facilitators were amazing! They were knowledgeable and knew just how to direct the students while we learned these valuable skills. It was a lovely program. I wish this could be available for all classes!”
