Creating Opportunities to Empower Youth
Recess Guardians has been around since 2008 and has been lucky enough to work in schools across Canada. Over this time, we have created a few different programs that allow us to empower kids in different ways and get them playing again.
Recess Guardians In-School Program
This is our flagship program and something we have perfected since our inception. During this half day session, we work in the gym with students in the grade 4-6 range by teaching them games and activities that are good for kids of all ages. We also discuss subjects like inclusion, sportsmanship, communication, etc. and at the end of the session, they get the opportunity to apply what they learned by instructing a group of younger students.
After our session is complete, we have a multitude of ways that the class will take on the role as Recess Guardians’ leaders, but it is totally up to the educators and students on how to proceed.
For more information, please contact Kale Johnson and he would be more than happy to chat with you.
Recess Guardians’ Virtual Leadership Program
We basically packed up our In-School Program and put it online! With 5 core modules that touch on leadership, inclusion, sportsmanship, communication and conflict resolution, we are able to help schools across Canada implement our program with the click of a button. We even added a parent/guardian piece so that our lessons can be taught at home as well. With a new module added every month, schools can keep the program fresh and spark it over and over again.
