Children & Youth Programs


We recognize our young people as valuable contributors to our community.

Our youth services provide avenues for the young members of our Town to cultivate self-awareness,  learn important life skills as they develop a sense of civic responsibility.



Roots of Empathy 

Our Roots of Empathy Program takes places once per month during term time with Grade 4 students. A trained Facilitator along with a parent and their child lead learning sessions that focus on empathy for emotional growth.

The programme aims to orient our young students on the value of interpersonal relationships rooted on care for one another.

At the moment, we are holding these sessions at Greentree Elementary School and St. Anthony’s School.


Leaders of Tomorrow 

This is an initiative honouring youth in our community who demonstrate volunteer leadership in areas such as school work, community and sports. There are four awards available every year two for students in grades 7-9 and two for students in grades 10-12. The winners are presented with a cheque at the Celebration of Excellence Awards Night. If you know someone who you feel is a Leader of Tomorrow please complete the Leaders of Tomorrow Application Form available by contacting 403-823-1324 or emailing  


Community Building Initiatives 

Our Community Building Initiatives focus on community youth organizations and events that promote the welfare of our youth in many ways.

In this respect, our efforts focus on the synergy of two areas, namely addressing the issue of youth at risk and maintaining a healthy learning environment for the young members of our community.

For inquiries about community building initiatives, please call (403) 823-1365.
