CLC Magic Stories
What happens when schools, families, and communities come together? We call that CLC magic!
LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) is the backbone organization that supports the Community Learning Centres (CLC) Initiative. There are 85 CLC schools and centres in all the Anglophone school boards across the province. The PRT offers professional training and development opportunities to administrators and educators (teachers, support staff), as well as training and networking opportunities for Community Development Agents.
One of the most popular segments of our training days is when school teams share success stories and best practices with their peers. By popular request, the PRT has gathered CLC magic stories from each school board to share. You will find stories that inspire, touch your heart, or inform you of activities and events that you can recreate in your school community.
What does that look like in schools and communities within the CLC network? Click on "show list" below to find out!

STUDENT-BASED MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVES
This year, the Community Health & Social Services Network (CHSSN) is partnering with LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) to offer $20,000 in grants. These funds will support student-based mental health initiatives within the Community Learning Centres (CLC) network that are aimed at promoting school-based mental health and well-being initiatives with community partners.
THE RESULTS ARE IN!
A few months ago, (see below) LEARN’s Provincial Resource Team (PRT) engaged in a collaboration with the Community Health and Social Services Network (CHSSN) to make a grant available to Community Learning Centres (CLC) to support the implementation of activities, projects and programs that address school-based mental health and wellbeing promotion initiatives.
