Youth Enjoy After School Programs in the Neighbourhood!
The Youth in Elmwood Arts and Recreation (YEAR) Program program offered by Elmwood Community Resource Centre is an after school drop-in program providing youth with a supportive, safe place to learn and grow, featuring multi-cultural teaching as well as arts and crafts, nutrition, recreational activities and life skills training.
YEAR’s main goal is to keep the youth (age 12-17) involved in our community. They strongly believe when a person feels good about themselves and their achievements and that it will encourage them to make informed and positive life choices. Self-esteem is essential in a youth’s life and the YEAR program aims to build their self -esteems with a lot of encouragement, positive role modelling, and mentoring.
