Healthy Relationship Certificate Program

Your school or classroom could become a Healthy Relationships Certified!

Your school or classroom could become Healthy Relationships Certified!

Champion School Certificate ExampleThe Healthy Relationships Certificate Program recognizes schools and classrooms who are dedicated to, and passionate about, providing relationship health education to their students!

Your school can become a Healthy Relationships Certified Champion or Hero School!
By providing your students with the information and skills they need to build healthy relationships, engage in healthy behaviors, adopt conflict resolution skills, become upstanders against bullying, recognize unhealthy behaviors – you set the stage for a positive school community!

Becoming a Healthy Relationships Certified Hero Class means that within your classroom, students are equipped with the strategies they need to build healthy relationships and healthy friendships. When you educate students about healthy/unhealthy behaviors and attitudes, you lay a positive foundation for your classroom culture and community!

Relationship Health Education can be transformative for both the development of your students, and for your school culture. The Public Education department at Halton Women’s Place is committed to being a resource for your students, because we strongly believe that Healthy Relationships = Healthy Communities.

Note: All of our presentations are curriculum-based.
