The Richmond Education Assistant Program (REAP) is designed for professional and caring adults who wish to work with K-12 school age learners with physical, behavioural, sensory and learning needs in schools.

Participants must have sufficient physical ability to perform activities such as supervision on the playground/gymnasium as well as perform activities such as the physical lifting of students.


Participants will be in a Part Time program that will begin in mid-January 2021 and end in February 2022.  There are eleven courses, two practica and a learning portofolio.  All instructors are highly qualified with specialty training and experience in their fields.
