South Vancouver Learning Centre

Program Description

The South Vancouver Learning Centre (SVLC) is an interagency program, partnering with Milieu Children & Family Services. SVLC supports the needs of students who have an extended history of non-engagement in school. Youth can attend the school program in addition to after school supports. Students are working on all core courses and various electives for Grades 8 to 10. 

All students at the SVLC program have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), which outlines and provides additional supports, adaptations, and goals that are personalized for each student to help support their success. This process involves the student, caregiver, various stakeholders, and program staff. Adaptations and modifications are made where necessary to meet the needs of the students. In addition to the academic component, students may be engaged in work experience, recreation, social, and life skills activities. Transition plans are explored to meet the current needs of the students, as they progress towards their senior grades.

Referral Process

Referrals for inter-agency programs require a MCFD Social Worker or Youth Justice referral; school staff do not have direct access to refer students to these programs.

Referrals are accepted on an on-going basis and reviewed by a MCFD/VSB screening committee to determine eligibility, placement, and priority.
