Student School Orientations

YDN believes in the power of building emotional safety and positive relationships for new students. This is why we have designed and facilitated school site orientations that build comfort for incoming students at the beginning of the school year, and help young people form connections with other students, teachers and staff. These orientations are facilitated by the YDN team or, in some cases, in partnership with school staff and youth where YDN facilitates the design and preparation of orientation so that it can be more self-led and sustainable.
