The Saskatchewan Middle Years Association believes middle years students require educators who understand and advocate for their students’ physical, emotional, social and academic needs. The SMYA provides workshops, speakers for interested groups, resource materials and an annual provincial conference.

Our organization has the following aims:

  • To further understanding of the Middle Years student
  • To further an understanding of programs and teaching strategies for the Middle Years
  • To provide a means of communication for teachers about Middle Years students
  • To develop a positive attitude toward Middle Years students
  • To provide a vehicle for sharing information with all partners in education
  • To advocate school experiences that are developmentally responsive to the needs of Middle Years students
