Youth Zone

The Youth Zone Program provides inclusive opportunities for youth ages 12-17 years to participate in supervised recreational activities, to organize activities initiated by themselves and to develop leadership skills fostering confidence and self-esteem.

The program runs during the summer with drop-in sites, special events, leadership development and volunteering being the focus of the program. The drop-in sites offer both structured and informal activities. Staff will plan for city-wide and site special events.

PLEASE NOTE: Several Leaders will be chosen to attend Inclusion Training (J.I.S.) in order to facilitate youth with special needs.
