Rite of Passage

Graduating from high school is a rite of passage, but for students at risk, high school can be an oppressive and intimidating place. Programs like the Gordon Bell Senior Off Campus program (GBSOC) however, offer an alternative to the mainstream school system, allowing students to work at their own pace, away from the barriers they experience in the mainstream system.

To better understand these dynamics, the CCPA worked with five at risk students in the GBSOC program, and made a film about their experiences. Film by Carole O'Brien.
