Scholarships and Tutoring
Ross Caradonna Education Fund
Education is critical to building a new life. In partnership with Pelletier Youth in Transition and the Ross Caradonna Educational fund, financial assistance is offered for post-secondary, trade schools and job training. In 2016, 23 youth received scholarships.
StepStones offers tutoring for youth who are enrolled in the Youth in Transition and/or mentoring program and who are currently in post secondary education. Students meet with tutors on a weekly basis to review homework, plan upcoming assignments and support their education. Tutors also provide support to the student in connecting them to school services, advocating on their behalf and helping the youth navigate the complex educational system.
In 2016, 23 youth participated in the StepStones tutoring program.
