Phelps offers a unique range of assistance designed to increase community engagement and to establish the foundation for a life of autonomy. Rural community members are provided the support system needed to graduate from high school and to realize their future career and educational goals.


Our Vision

Empowering a community through educational and career support

Four Pillars of Support

Phelps focuses on four key outcomes leading to enhanced community vitality for the Stanstead area:


Successful educational transitions

Participating community members will benefit from building a clear vision of their paths, motivated and enthusiastic to learn and to achieve personal educational success.


Increased autonomy

By building independent decision-making capabilities, improving social relationships and developing self-management skills, participants will establish the foundation required for a life of autonomy.

Gaining and holding valuable employment


Participants will be guided to discover practical career paths which include developing a broader range of work and language skills needed to elevate employment opportunities.

Advocating for the community and engaging influencers


Phelps will work to increase awareness of our Mission and to mobilize involvement, both within the community and with the wider region. Influencers will be recruited to partner and advocate to decision makers on Phelps’ behalf with the goal of sharing our successful model for the benefit of other rural communities.
