ACCEL is an adaptation of the RE/ACT program specifically designed to suit the needs of youth between the ages of 12-17 years. It is offered in a broad range of learning formats (including in-person, video, group activities and games) and learning styles (visual, auditory, relational, and kinesthetic learning).
ACCEL builds on the innovations of RE/ACT – exploring and finding healing from the complex trauma that shapes our lives. Beginning with an awareness of trauma, the program builds healthy self regulation tools to help direct our lives in a healthy manner.
The 8 week course includes a Monday afterschool session introducing one of eight themes. On the weekend there are outdoor activities such as hiking, horses, skateboarding lessons, and more. The time together helps to process what was learned and practiced through the week.
Ongoing support is available through coaches, and monthly alumni meetings.
The cost of the program is $750 and covers all programming, curriculum and activities. A bursary is available based on need.
Registration will be open January 15, 2022.
