The Children, Youth and Families Department caters to participants from Kindergarten to grade 11 through various programs offered from September to August. Our department prides itself on offering a balance of academic and socio-recreation programming. We truly believe in developing interpersonal skills such as empathy and social responsibility. These skills are achieved through various monthly themes, special events and community building projects that are incorporated in the following programs:
Students arrive and are served snacks prepared by our kitchen animator. During our education time students are provided with a space to work on homework with some assistance from an educator and volunteer. After homework students participate in social-recreation activities such as cooperative games, team sports, arts & crafts, etc. *As there are many children in the class, it is not always possible to complete all homework before our socio-recreation program. In response to this, we have two specialized tutors who work throughout the week to offer additional and individual support. Please email email@example.com for additional information.
Hours: Monday to Thursday 2:30pm to 6pm, Friday 2:30pm to 5pm
Upon arrival students gather in the community room for announcements. Students are then divided into classrooms by grade level where they complete their homework with the help of a specialized tutor and volunteers. At the end of the night everyone is served a hot meal prepared by our kitchen animator.
Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 6:30-8:30pm

Fly Fridays is designed to provide a space for youth and teens from within the community. They are able to come and participate in different programs with staff and volunteers.

The youth co-op is a project that has been implemented in Quebec for over 25 years. The project is based on education and work related experience in a cooperative business. With the help of two coordinators and a local committee of professionals, 15 youth create and operate a cooperative business in their community. The purpose of the cooperative is for the youth to gain valuable work experience, receive paid contracts for their services and to fundraise.
