Introduction

The inaugural year was 1994/95. Initially the Outreach offered high school education for teen moms and at-risk students. Beginning in 1996, community agencies partnered with the Outreach to offer a wider youth support network. This included counsellors, native liaison worker, office personnel, transportation and supporting programming materials. In September 1999, the Outreach was re-located to a downtown facility. At this time childcare was made available to young parents working on-site. In 2002, the Outreach partnered with NADC to offer students intensive career counselling. In 2005, the Outreach opened its doors to adult students.
