Having a safe place to be where the kids are exposed to new opportunities and positive adult role models is very important in the development of children & youth. This program tends to be fairly traditional in nature and closely follows our Core Values. We offer skill development programs from Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada National programs: Power Up! – an academic enhancement program and Cool Moves – a healthy active lifestyle program. Over the years, this program has evolved into an informal leadership club, where throughout all aspects of programming the participants have a say in the design of the program and many opportunities to plan and run programs for themselves. We have a partnership with Pleasant Hill School. The school invites us to participate in their Pipe Ceremony a few times per year; we are able to use their newsletter as a means of communication with the children and families in the neighbourhood. We use the Pleasant Hill School gym 2 afternoons each week, so program time starts right at the school where the kids are and allows them to participate in some physical activity. We have a formal Leadership program running called Youth Leading Youth that is funded through the Urban Aboriginal Grant Program and is run jointly in our 3 Club locations: Confederation Park Club, Pleasant Hill Club and the White Buffalo Club.
