Partners in Transformations keystone program is Pause for students. Pause was created to help bridge the gap between high school and post-secondary education. We, at Partners in Transformation, understand and have personally experienced the challenges of transitioning from a structured and monitored environment both in high school and at home to entering into a campus with freedom, choices, and independence. This can be overwhelming for both the students and parents. We have developed Pause to provide students with a toolkit to:

Manage academic pressures such as workload, time management, and studying strategies.

Conquer interpersonal challenges including making new friends, establishing academic relationships and developing romantic interests.

Provide the confidence and self-assurance to become actively involved in campus life.

Develop life skills to succeed at independent living.

Navigate the educational system including resources and services available to students.

Pause is a 7 hour workshop including an hour of scheduled lunch and breaks.

The workshop offers a non-traditional lecture style session including diverse modes of teaching. Participants will partake in:

  • Small group learnings
  • Case studies
  • Interactive and experiential exercises
  • Individual reflection time through various types of media

Participants will also have continued access to resources used in the workshop. Following the workshop, there will be opportunities to purchase continued support for the student once they have entered the post secondary scene.
