Free for Youth
All youth, up to the age of 18, are welcome to participate in all activities for FREE. Other Kitselas members are also welcome to join but must first get permission from the Youth Wellness Coordinator, who leads all the activities and runs the Centre.
The Youth Wellness Program, along with the Youth Wellness Centre, foster a safe and friendly environment for our youth to relax, socialize and live and learn about a healthy, harm-free lifestyle. While the Youth Program is focused on fun and physical activities, there’s also health components throughout the activities. Through group discussions, presentations and guest speakers youth are educated around the topics of mental health & wellness; risky behavior; self-esteem and building confidence; substance abuse; peer pressure and bullying; physical health including basic hygiene, oral health, body changes and puberty; and sex ed.
All scheduled activities will be listed on the Kitselas website calendar.
