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 F2016 SLR served 3,993 youth through 16 programs.

SLR’s programs include Life Choices, aimed at helping youth aged 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 aged 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. In F2016, the resiliency-based Thrive program helped 120 youth develop perseverance, confidence and courage. The PASS (positive alternative to school suspension) program supported 192 students last year, and is receiving a growing number of referrals. SLR reported that 92% of students were more likely to think about the consequences of their actions after the PASS program. 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 Children’s Aid Society to independent living.
