Wet days start at HYC

Yet another flight – Many young members of the HYC took to the air for the first time last week in groups of three

Congratulations to new Big Brother match Kelly Anderson and Matthew. Heartland Youth Center is home to two national organizations, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Boys and Girls Club. During the summer our Boys and Girls Club offers the RAD program for kids ages 6-12, and Teen Trips for youth ages 13-18. Throughout the school months, Boys and Girls Club offers after-school and holiday programs.

Big Brothers Big Sisters programs include traditional matches, In-School Mentoring, and Rainbows. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are adult volunteers who spend a few hours each month with a child, providing friendship and support.

Matches enjoy spending time together at community events, watching movies, playing video games, fishing, crafts, and just hanging out. To find out how you can get involved, have some fun, and share your life with a child, please call 403-742-5437.

RAD summer program participants have a busy month ahead. This week’s activities include water races, backyard beach bash, and a trip to Wild Rapids in Sylvan Lake. Coming events will consist of a trip to the Edmonton Zoo, HYC Survivor, messy games, picnics, dodgeball, and HYC Olympics. Please call Baylee at 403-742-5437 if you would like to participate in any of our exciting activities.
