A+ A-

We are pleased to announce the return of Sarah Stevens to the Ancaster High Student Services team! Sarah comes to us from an agency called Alternatives for Youth and has been a trusted resource for parents and students for years.

Sarah provides substance use counselling and education and can be reached by students and parents via text message or voice at 905-388-5657.

Sarah is on-site at Ancaster High School on Wednesdays and Thursdays for special consideration only, and is mainly providing her services through Zoom and telephone appointments.

Parents/guardians are also supported directly. Please consult the Alternatives for Youth website for program information.


In January, AY is offering a six week Parent Education, Support and Skills Development Program (PEP). This is available to all parents, even if their student is not currently accessing AY’s services. If interested, please register in advance by calling Sara McAuley at 905-527-4469 (press 8) or e-mailing.
