In addition to providingsupport in academic courses, Charleneand Frank have brought some handsonlearning to the kids at the Hay byintroducing small engine repair, drywallinstallation and repair, and painting.Valuable skills acquired in theseprograms will assist with the challengesof community reintegration.Starting in December 2006, the W.E. HayCentre began accepting older youth (16and17 years old). In the classroom theseolder students tend to be more focusedon attaining high school credits, whichhas a positive influence on the youngerstudents. This may be the first timeteachers at the Hay have granted a 4Uhistory credit.The Sherwood McHugh Classroom caters to both maleand female learners ages 12 to 15. The students takeadvantage of the non-intimidating and welcomingeducational wing as a support mechanism to continuetheir academics while not being able to attend theirlocal community school. If a student is enrolled ina community school, he/she is able to completeassignments as they are received from the school. Thiscontinuity helps greatly in the re-integration of thestudent upon discharge.More accurately, however, a greater number of ourstudents this year have come to us without beingregistered in a community school. In addition, manyof these youth typically have yet to earn their firsthigh school credit. It is extremely rewarding, and thiscontinues to be an on-going highlight, when studentsare able to complete their first credits. This is oftena motivational starting point for the youth. With somany stressors in their lives, and school attendancebeing just one of these, school success is incrediblyempowering to our Sherwood youth.24Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa - Annual Report 2006 / 2007
