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 

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


Leaders of Tomorrow 

This is an initiative honouring youth in our community who demonstrate leadership in areas such as school work, community and sports. There are two awards available every year one for students in grades 7-9 and one for students in grades 10-12. The winners are selected by teachers at the school of the applicants. The winners are presented with a certificate, a cash prize at the Rotary Club of Drumheller Awards for Excellence Gala. If you know someone who you feel is a Leader of Tomorrow please complete the Leaders of Tomorrow Application Form available by contacting 403-823-1324 or emailing  


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.


For more information about our youth services in general, you can reach us at (403) 823-1315 and our dedicated coordinators will be more than happy to address your concerns. 


We believe that strong families are the heart of a prosperous community.

Family services refer to our various initiatives that focus on building, maintaining, and recovering healthy family relationships.

Knowing about our programs takes you one step closer to meaningful experiences that develop a sense of togetherness.   


Family Fun 

In coordination with local community organizations, Family Fun is a program that aims to allow quality time for families to cultivate a deeper bond. 

With different events throughout the year, both parents and children can participate in engaging learning experiences that can help families grow together.

Our FCSS partners with Golden Prairie Parent Link Center to support young families in the Drumheller area.


Parent Link provides weekly play programs supporting early childhood development, along with parent education, information and referral and developmental screening.

Evidence confirms that the early years present unique opportunities for positively affecting development.

The benefits are not only reaped by each child individally, but by society as a whole through reduced social costs, greater stability and prosperity, and a healthier, more productive population.

The Drumheller and Area Early Childhood Coalition also provides an opportunity for FCSS and other agencies to plan positive initiatives such as the Early Years Fair to help parents connect with local services. 

Together we want to gain a better understanding of how young children in our area are doing and how we can respond more effectively to meet their needs!

For mor informtion call: Louise: 403-823-6800


Big Country Anti-Violence 

We have also partnered with Big Country Anti-Violence to promote the cause against domestic violence.

Through initiatives like Walk in A Mile in Her Shoes and Angel’s Corner, we are able to raise awareness about the effects of domestic violence that can significantly impact a family’s well-being.



Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) is a set of permanent birth defects caused by pre-natal alcohol exposure.

It is a condition that threatens the development of children and can challenge a family’s stability.

To prevent this and support families with a child with this condition, we have established a committee consisting of experts and advocates.

This committee is tasked to develop programs and resources that educate and extend aid to the families in need of this service.
