The HYC staff are happy to see old friends and new faces in this year’s crop of after-school program members. The program is in its second week now and it’s starting to look like it’s going to be a busy year. Spaces are still available if you are looking for after-school activities for your 6-12-year-old, just drop by for all the info.

Adrianne Shepherd was recently selected as the first recipient of the Nicky’s HYC Leadership Grant this year. Adrianne was a member of the Youth Center for 12 years, participating in both the Boys and Girls Club and the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Adrianne is currently attending the Red Deer College Bachelor of Education program and we wish her all the best. Congratulations Adrianne.

The teen programs, Torch and Keystone, are now underway but are looking for some new members. If you know a teen that enjoys helping out others, fun activities and friendship, get them to check out the programs.

Leadership skills, career development and new experiences are just a few benefits of being a member. If an after-school experience is up your teen’s alley, you can also check out the HYC Junior Leader program that runs Monday to Friday.

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” (Forest Witcraft).
