S4 in Schools

Start Smart Stay Safe (S4) intentionally engages children in proactive strengths-based classroom and school experiences. The foundation of the strengths-based approach to teaching is a belief that children have unique strengths, talents, skills and experiences to navigate through life’s daily challenges in our changing world.

S4 in schools provides opportunities for children to build an awareness of their personal strengths, learn the importance of belonging, make positive choices, and develop leadership skills in order to contribute to a safe and caring school community. S4 activities are aligned to Alberta Education Curriculum.
