Station Stretch Program

The Youth and Family Counsellor (YFC) position at Station Strech alternative school in Richmond, BC is the product of a partnership between the Richmond School District and Richmond Youth Service Agency. The purpose of our counsellor is to provide counselling and support services to youth ages 13-17 at Station Stretch who commonly struggle with academic troubles, social and emotional challenges, substance misuse, involvement with the justice system, or truancy.

Program Details
  • Station Stretch is a Grade 9/10 school readiness program where students have the opportunity to “catch up” on the core academic courses as well as work on issues impeding their success at the larger high schools
  • The goal is to enable the student to complete grade 10 in the four core subjects and to re-enter the school system at the senior level
  • The YFC aspires to assist students by helping them reduce social/ emotional distress and develop life skills so that they can improve their school performance and meet the program expectations and guidelines
  • Virtually every student that attends Station Stretch receives some level of YFC service, ranging from consultation and advocacy to intensive counselling

How to Participate

Referral is required from a school-district area counsellor.
