British Colombia Alternative Education Program Conference

The Quirky Kid team is heading to Canada in February 2015.
We will be presenting during British Colombia Alternative Education Program (BCAEA) conference. The British Columbia Alternate Education Association is a Provincial Specialist Association (PSA) of the BC Teacher’s Federation.

Alternate (or Alternative) Education programs exist in many varieties. At its simplest, Alternate Education attempts to help at-risk youth, who, because of a variety of factors, are unsuccessful in the main stream. Problems experienced by these students may include a wide range of social and emotional difficulties, drug issues, trouble with the law, teenage parenthood, and a whole host of others. What these students share in common is an inability to progress satisfactorily in the regular system.

Dates and locations will soon be advertised. You can now register for:
