NEW! Mohawk College Credit Course for SAVTI Clients

This past spring, six SAVTI clients took the opportunity to experience college, gain skills, meet friends and earn a college credit. All for free!

Between April and June of 2016, six SAVTI clients from the Hamilton area attended a Mohawk College course called “Introduction to Post-Secondary Experiences.” The course was 9 weeks long and classes were 2 evenings per week. Topics were chosen that had particular relevance to childhood cancer and brain tumour survivors. They included: Development of Identity, Overcoming Barriers, Academic Skills, Coping with Stress, Future Planning and many more. All students in the class were out of high school and not attending post-secondary education. It is our hope that by attending this class they will have gained the skills and confidence they need to pursue their goals and achieve their dreams. Congratulations to all six participants who earned a Mohawk College credit!

SAVTI would like to offer this class to our clients throughout Ontario at different colleges. If you are interested in participating in a class like this in the future, please let your SAVTI counsellor know.
