The Fourth R Program coming to SNCDSB

The Superior North Catholic District School Board is honoured to be a project partner with the Thunder Bay District Health Unit to implement the Youth Violence Prevention Project.

This exciting initiative provides the capacity to implement a school-based, skills-focused, healthy relationship program aimed at preventing teen violence and related risk behaviours for Grade 7-9 youth in our region.

Together we will deliver the Fourth R, an evidence-based program that addresses the Grade 7-9 Ontario Health Curriculum with units on:

  1. Personal Safety & Injury Prevention
  2. Substance Use, Addictions and Related Behaviours
  3. Human Development and Sexual Health
  4. Healthy Eating

The Fourth R applies a youth-focused, harm-reduction strategy to empower students with the knowledge, positive relationship skills and decision making abilities to target the unhealthy behaviours and attitudes that contribute to teen violence perpetuation and victimization.

The program will be launched in all nine Superior North Catholic District School Board Schools in the Fall of 2019.
