Our program promotes student individuality while encouraging team work to build skills and abilities. All students are encouraged to participate in work placement activities to practice the skills they have acquired in the program. Classes run four (4) days per week with one day of field experience outside the center.
Admission of Adults into the Social Integration Services Program
Adults are admitted to the SIS program not because of a particular disability or the handicap associated with it, but rather on the basis of the social difficulties and challenges experienced by the individual. However, the adults’ disabilities are taken into consideration in the formation and the teaching that takes place in the classes.
We offer an inclusive and personalized approach to enable each of our students to thrive in an environment of trust and security. Our SIS students give back to the community through their support of Sun Youth, providing food baskets, selling their jewelry and decorations, and visiting schools to make presentations on anti-bullying initiatives.

Students with special needs (SIS)
Our “Social Integration Service” program (the Sunshine Class) is designed for adults who are experiencing mild to severe adjustment difficulties or challenges integrating into society. Some of our students have special needs, including mild or moderate intellectual delay, anxiety, depression, physical challenges, social challenges, or require skills training to live more autonomously. The SIS program fosters and promotes the students’ individuality while encouraging everyone to work together in order to discover their skills and abilities. Many of our students attend work field placement to complement our in-classroom learning. Strong emphasis is placed on acquiring essential life and self care skills, including cooking, nutrition and health management. The curriculum is complemented by leisure and technology studies, all in a highly interactive and caring classroom environment.
