2021 Partnership Awards Spotlight

Here is an example of the impact community partners can make in a school and/or district. Each week we will be shining a spotlight on a past recipient of the BCPVPA Partnership Award. 

This week: Vancouver Island Counselling Centre for Immigrants and Refugees (Nominated by SD 63, Saanich)

Since being founded in 2015, VICCIR has helped immigrant and refugee families and students to work through trauma and create a sense of belonging in their new community, country, and culture through face-to-face and virtual counselling, adolescent male groups, and parenting sessions in a multitude of languages.  

2022 Partnership Awards: Nominations are now Open!

Who has gone the extra mile to support your school community? BCPVPA Chapters are invited to nominate individuals, organizations, and businesses who contribute their time, expertise, and passion to make a difference in the lives of BC students. Community partners bring special opportunities and services to schools – now is the time to celebrate all that they do.
