In addition, we offer programs and activities with trained, dedicated staff and volunteers who support children and youth, ranging in age from pre-school to young adulthood. Some programs offer physical recreation, technology, the arts and personal growth, nutrition services, family support programs, mentoring and other supports to children and youth at risk. Programs are offered primarily during the after-school hours when studies have shown that young people are most vulnerable at becoming drawn into anti-social behaviours. We also offer programs and practces for our dance and drama during evenings and weekends.
