Communities That Care Whistler bases its programming on the Risk and Protective Factors that are highlighted by our surveys of Whistler’s school-aged children in Grades 6 – 12. These survey are completed every three to four years to ensure we are aware of emerging trend. The selected speakers and workshops are researched to ensure they are supported evidence based programming or data.
Communities that Care Whistler is based on a North American community social action organization which has developed a research based prevention process that engages the community in promoting the positive development of young people. Our board has community and provincial representation from education, health, recreational, social and law enforcement professionals as well as community volunteers
As a parent and as a Trustee of the Sea to Sky school district I appreciate the variety of opportunities for learning provided by the Whistler chapter of Communities That Care. This organization provides people with constructive opportunities to grow knowledge in areas that are important to families and individuals alike. I would encourage participation in their programming.
