The Way In program

 What is the The Way In program about?

The Way In Program is an innovative partnership between Edmonton Public Schools and several community, city, and provincial partners which supports teens and their families to create brighter futures; everyone needs a little help sometimes to deal with life's challenges.

The Way In Program is a pilot program which is available to students of T. D. Baker School, Dan Knott School, and Edith Rogers Schools. Our program works with teens and families to build on their strengths, deal with issues, and get involved in activities that help them learn skills to be successful.
