Terra relies on volunteers, financial and in-kind donations to offer services and support our teen parents.
At Terra, our specialized team tailors programs and services to meet the needs of each teen parent. Always safe, never judgemental. Learn more about what we have to offer our young families.
Terra has a unique partnership with Edmonton Public Schools (EPSB) that allows us to work collectively on site at Braemar School to offer supports, services, and programs that contribute to the educational success of the young mothers enrolled there.
ESS provides individual counselling, support group, parenting education, referral and advocacy to a student population of 100-160 young moms each academic year.
It is our goal to make sure each young mom arriving at Braemar School feels welcomed by both the staff of Braemar School and the Terra Centre ESS branch. We work together to ensure that everything is in place so mom can achieve her goal of completing her high school education and creating a successful life for her and her child.
No question or concern is out of realm for our staff. They are there to assist our young moms and help them reach their educational and personal goals. Above all else, they are a listening ear.
Along with providing personal support to young moms, ESS is also responsible for a variety of programs that are offered at Braemar School to benefit them as they work towards their high school graduation.
In addition to these regular programs, Terra hosts various other events and days of appreciation for our young mothers that aim to inspire them, motivate them, and celebrate their achievements.
For more information about the programs Terra offers young mothers attending Braemar School, please contact our Educational Support Services Supervisor.
If you think that attending Braemar School and accessing the programs listed above could make a difference in your life, we encourage you to visit our Starting Point page. Getting started is much easier than you think, and our Starting Point Support Worker will be there to answer questions and address concerns every step of the way!
Being able to go to ESS between classes and speak to someone made attending school less stressful. There was always someone to help.
“If you need help, they can help you. I have benefited in every way possible. I would not be where I am today without the ESS program."
