Girls Group

Girls Group is a weekly program run out of Community Services, after school for girls grade 5 and up. This program is a safe place for the girls to come together once a week and hang out. It is run from an interactive empowerment perspective and covers topics such as healthy relationships, positive self-esteem, life skills, and building confidence.  This program also gives the girls a place to build strong lasting friendships with one another. The feedback from this program has been very good, and it continues to have a waitlist. 


Meet & Greet

Every Tuesday morning CLCS counsellors attend Lake Cowichan School and greet students as they arrive. Meet & Greet is an informall way for the counsellors to check in with students and make their face known to the school population. Community members such as RCMP also join us as part of the Meet & Greet Program

The workshops run from September-December and assist students in developing their peer counselling skill set. From January - June our counsellors take on a supportive role with the student peer counsellors offering resources, feedback and support while they are actively providing support to fellow students!
