Onoway welcomes Derek Peterson back into their WEB!

Connecting STUDENTS to a Brighter Future!

Giving youth the skills, attitudes, values and beliefs they need to thrive through personal webs of support.

We all have people who impact our lives for the better - people who along the course of our personal journeys have helped us along the way, whether we knew if or not - coaches, pastors, mentors, family members and member of our community.

These people are our anchors and we need them to thrive and succeed. Our kids need those anchors too! Together, our anchors form our own personal web of supports to cushion our fall, point us in the right direction, advocate on our behalf or lift us back up when needed.

Last Fall, Onoway Elementary and Onoway Jr/Sr High, embarked on a journey with child/youth champion and advocate Derek Peterson, to foster resiliency and prepare our kids with the tools they need to develop their own "personal village of supports."

The work continues this Thursday and Friday, March 15 and 16, as Derek Peterson returns to Onoway to work with students and staff to support their Webs of Support programming!
