Hosted at YMCA Moncton North, the goal of Youth Connections is to give youth a safe space to call their own, where they can socialize, make new friendships, and learn life skills. Youth Connections has three pillars: socializing, life skills and community-based volunteering.
Social events will include activities like open gym, art classes, movie night, and more!
Youth will develop life skills by participating in workshops on topics like resume building, job and university applications, alcohol and drug awareness, and mental health awareness.
Volunteering will involve youth in different programs around their community, like food banks, homeless shelters, nursing homes and other organizations where they will be able to have a positive influence on their community.
This is a program for youth, designed by youth! We want to hear from you! Give us ideas on different activities, training/ information sessions and volunteer opportunities that would interest you. This program is offered to youth in grades 7-12. To learn more, join us for an information session in January 2021 (exact date to be determined).
