Each year, the Chaleur Youth Future Committee holds the Turnaround Achievement
Awards banquet. The Turnaround Achievement Awards Program is held annually in our
region by all schools in the Chaleur Region. This program aims to recognize youth who have
demonstrated effort, engagement and perseverance in order to give a positive turn to their life.
This event is a huge success with the youth, the parents and the school establishments and
the community. It is therefore a real occasion to make a difference in the lives of youth.
The criteria of selectin are established by the schools.
Examples of criteria from other award programs include attitude, behaviour, academic performance,
personal handicaps and even substance abuse. Principals, teachers, and guidance counsellors
are involved in the selection of the nominees. The final selections are determined by the
Chaleur Youth Future Committee. This event is held every year in May at the
Conference Centre of Danny’s Motor Inn in Beresford.
