Psychosocial Workers

High school is an adventure filled with new discoveries. It is normal for young people to experience different emotions and have many questions about this new stage.

"The important thing about extracurricular activities is to have fun. Plus, they'll help you grow and develop all kinds of personal skills." - Joana, psychosocial worker at Young Musicians of the World

Examples of questions during the animation

This web capsule, which can be viewed in different contexts, was created as a pedagogical tool to support professionals (psychosocial workers and teachers) in their awareness and prevention activities.

In fact, the web capsule was designed to interest and make young people think about the beginning of high school. The discussions that will ensue will highlight the fact that no matter what young people are going through, there are a lot of resources in Laval that can help them throughout their lives.
