IMPACT Program

IMPACT is a mentoring program that involves the District School Board of Niagara, the Niagara Regional Police and Brock University. The goal of the program is to assist your child in making positive choices and decisions for their life.  The program was designed as a project to get our local university athletes involved in the lives of teenagers in our high schools.  The Brock students have developed a program to assist our teens.  Your child will participate in activities that include goal setting, career planning, teamwork skills, recreation skills and decision making skills.  See Mr.  Balogh or Mr. Zuccarello for more details.

Most of the sessions will be held at St. Catharines Collegiate, 34 Catherine Street, St. Catharines.  Once each term, activities take place at Brock University – Walker Complex.

The students from last year truly enjoyed their experience and many told me they wished it could continue year round.  They looked forward to seeing their Brock mentor and taking part in the activities. 

Transportation is included in the program.  The departure point and return location is Port Colborne High School.  Students will be leaving Port High at 6:00 p.m. and will return to the school at approximately 9:15 p.m.  

Students will access transportation on their own and school board staff will meet them at St. Catharines Collegiate.

Students must commit to all of the sessions.  The program will count for 30 hours of community service and 10 bonus hours if you attend the bonus nights to be scheduled.  The community service hours are a real bonus for all of our participants!
