These programs are for academically and intellectually capable, at-risk students who have experienced difficulty in regular school programs because of their behaviour choices.  ConnectEd Alternate programs are administratively part of ConnectEd, but operate independently in separate buildings.  The programs run in partnership with the Penticton and District Community Resources Society (PDCRS) and employ Ministry of Education funded Youth Workers.

The ConnectEd Alternate Programs endeavour to meet the needs of at-risk students in the community.  Our students may be struggling with a variety of issues including; low self-esteem, anger management problems, substance misuse, unstable home circumstances, involvement in criminal activity, histories of neglect and physical, emotional or sexual abuse, and mental health issues.  Our goal is to provide a safe, structured, interesting and supportive environment for these students to participate in constructive social / creative activities and positive peer and adult interactions while completing their academic work.
