In its early years since launching in 2015, WellAhead took a prototyping approach that experimented with a range of approaches to integrating wellbeing into K-12 education in BC and Ontario. You can read more about our past grants and initiatives below.
For the 2018–19 and 2019–20 school years, WellAhead is focusing its efforts on knowledge mobilization to school, district and provincial leaders. We want to ensure that decision-makers across the education system have the information and evidence they need to develop and implement effective and sustainable approaches to promoting wellbeing. Our priority areas are:
District-wide wellbeing: Supporting leaders and decision-makers to take a more systemic approach that integrates wellbeing in all aspects of a school board/district.
Workplace Wellbeing in K-12 Education: Catalyzing support for teacher and staff wellbeing as an integral part of a whole-school, whole system approach to prioritizing wellbeing.
