Visit from Pathways to Education, Saint John, NB, to the Portage Atlantic Centre at Cassidy Lake – May 2, 2018
Portage Atlantic greeted Harry Daley, Youth Advisor, and Austin Beddow, a student taking part in the Pathways to Education programming, who attended the male residents’ morning meeting followed by a tour of the facility.
The morning meeting is a time of communicating and sharing by the residents, as part of the therapeutic community model, in which the residents work together through peer mentoring and positive role modelling.
Some of the residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation to Austin Beddow who raised $500 in support of the Portage Atlantic services and programs, by holding a fundraising event at Rockwood Park in Saint John.
