About Sarnia-Lambton Rebound:

Founded in 1984, Sarnia-Lambton Rebound (SLR) is committed to supporting children, youth and their families. SLR has developed programs using evidence-based practices from research with Canadian youth. In 2014 SLR served 5093 youth through 19 programs.

SLR’s programs include Life Choices, aimed at helping youth ages 12-17 build social skills such as communication, decision-making, goal setting and teamwork and Choices Jr., a 10-week preventative substance use program for youth ages 8-11. SLR’s STAND, Stop Think and Decide, program offers youth help on a one-on-one basis by providing them with strategies to make good decisions. Last year the resiliency-based Thrive program helped 402 youth to develop perseverance, confidence and courage. The PASS (positive alternative to school suspension) program supported 183 students last year, and is receiving a growing number of referrals. The STAGE (strategies towards achieving girl empowerment) helps youth deal with relational aggression and body image pressures. The TAGS (tools for attaining growth) program focuses on issues that boys age 8-11 face on a regular basis, including aggression, teamwork and respect. SLR’s Youth in Transition program helps youth between the ages of 16 and 24 transition from the care of a Children’s Aid Society to independent living.

In 2014 SLR partnered with the Lambton Kent District and St Clair Catholic Boards of Education and Sarnia-Lambton Children’s Aid Society (CAS) to pilot a classroom model for youth involved with the child welfare system, a substance abuse prevention program, and a girl’s mentoring program for girls involved with the local CAS.
