The SBL staff team is present during the school day at Westview Centennial Secondary School in the SBL Youth Space, within the Westview Student Centre, to provide students with a space that belongs to them and offers supports tailored to meet their needs.
Students on Spare:Students who have a free period on their timetable are able to make use of the lounge area, computers, workspace, and staff support in the SBL Youth Space within the Westview Student Centre.
Co-op and Placement:Grade 11 and 12 students are able to gain valuable insight into community work through completing placements with Success Beyond Limits. Additionally, every year we take former SBL and Westview students on as placement students for their post-secondary programs (including: George Brown, Humber, and Seneca).
Student Support:The years that the SBL staff team have taken to build strong relationships with youth in the community allows them to be a trusted resource to students. The SBL staff team is available to address student needs, work in partnership with school staff to support students, to aid in the resolution of issues that students are facing, and to connect them with valuable resources.
Students in Need:Students can always turn to SBL staff that are available to support them and/or connect them to the appropriate channels to resolve any challenges, problems or concerns during the school day. While we are present during the school day, our availability and reach go beyond the school as a space, and the school day.
Collaboration with Teachers:SBL staff, Mentors and tutors provide additional support to students through connecting with teachers to assist in resolving issues related to grades, missed assignments, lateness, absences, and difficulties in the classroom.
