HYC back in action

The Heartland Youth Center is now open and ready for another busy year of after-school programs.

The Heartland Youth Center is now open and ready for another busy year of after-school programs.

A few new exciting changes have been made to some of the programs and we hope the kids will really enjoy them. Programs run Monday through Friday afters chool with exciting activities throughout. Program highlights include physical activity, healthy snacks, crafts and story telling. We do recommend to parents to pre register for the after-school programs, as some do have limited space.

‘Spotlight’ is one of our programs with a new twist, involving drama as a tool to encourage better reading and writing skills and will run in tandem with the Monday drop-in program. Highlight activities for that program will include creative writing projects, acting and much more.

Weird Science is new to our Wednesday after school program line-up and has a lot to offer 9- to 12-year- olds. With help from Actua and the Red Deer College, the program members will be involved in an array of exciting hands on science and technology-based experiments throughout the year.

Our evening teen programs are gearing right now as well, with Keystone running Wednesday nights and Torch’s first night on Thursday. Both programs teach leadership skills, career development and have a strong history of volunteerism and community involvement.

We are also sending a call out to anyone who would like to be involved in children’s lives through story telling, teaching a new skill or just helping out. Watching a child grasp a new concept or skill because you took a little time is an incredibly rewarding thing to be part of.

Drop by the Youth Center and check it out.
