Information for Schools

Please see the She Can! 2023-2024 Program Guide, Registration Form and Frequently Asked Questions below.

We have 3 terms available for schools: Fall - starting in September, Winter - starting in January, and Spring - starting in April. You may select which terms work best for your school.  Our programs run best in smaller groups, therefore we have a maximum of 15 participants per program.  


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How many sessions are there?
Each She Can! Program consists of 8 – 10 weeks of programming.

How many participants are included in one session?
We accept a maximum of 15 participants per program; However, smaller groups of 9 – 12 participants can help to create positive connections between the group and the facilitator.

Will we lose a session if there is a PA Day, holiday or snow day?
There are 1 – 2 weeks allocated at the end of the term to make up for missed sessions. If there are more missed days than that, we will find a way to condense the program for the participants.

How do we select the schools we work with?
Schools are selected using several criteria to ensure that She Can! programs are offered to the Halton Region equitably, with a priority focus on supporting under-served and vulnerable populations. These criteria include school location, needs of the school, dates and times of requests, and previous experience with She Can!

Can we have more than one program at a school?
Due to the demand of the She Can! Program, we are only able to offer one program at a school at a time. Schools can reapply for a new program, in a new term after the current program is completed.

What is the process for She Can! Programs in schools?
Once the school has been selected, we will contact the school to give them the registration forms. If there have been any changes in the application details, you can let us know at this time.

Can individuals register late?
We prefer having all participants present from the first session, but we understand that changes may occur. The CYC or contact at the school can contact the facilitator to discuss including additional participants.
