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.

 

Before and After School 

This programme provides supervised and strategically structured learning activities for children before and after attending formal education.

In these sessions, child participants take part in activities that promote physical and psychological development.  

For more information about this program, you may contact us at (403) 823-1365 or email  aharrison@dinosaurvalley.com 

 Registration forms are available from the program director at Greentree School or at Town Hall. Monthly prepayments are required.

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.
