Preteens & Youth

Programs Overview

Preteens

Our Preteen Adventures program is for preteens to hang out and learn basic life skills. Participants are expected to register for the program (although checking it out a couple of times first is okay too). The afterschool preteen program offers a little something for every preteen: sports, team building activities, culinary endeavors, stuff for girls, stuff for boys, swimming outings, and field trips.

Youth

We have an extensive and appealing range of programs and activities for preteens (ages 10-12), teens (ages 13-18), and young adults (19-24). Led by a multidisciplinary team, our programs offer young people to connect with their peers and community, while also providing a safe space in which they can develop their resiliency, life skills, a sense of self, leadership skills, and have fun at the same time. From movie nights to coffeehouses, hiking, kayaking, homework help and newcomer support, we try to meet the diverse needs of all young people who come to our neighbourhood house.

Some of our activities have a small fee, some are free, and in all cases, funding is available through our Access Program.
