Community School Teams are an initiative of the Vancouver School district to provide evidence-based programming which supports asset development of children and youth enrolled in Vancouver schools.

Programs are developed in partnership with school and community stakeholders and are intended to support students to:

  • Increase academic success
  • Increase social-emotional functioning
  • Increase community and school connectedness
  • Increase attendance 

Types of programs include but are not limited to: sports, literacy, arts and culture, food and nutrition, social emotional skills, environmental stewardship, global citizenship and leadership development.

Many programs are low cost, participation-based and often include a ‘tri-mentorship’ structure with high school students and/or community members participating as volunteers.
