Addressing the Needs of Children and Youth
Our programs are diverse, ranging from cooking/nutrition to sports and music, so there is definitely something for everyone! All of our programs centre on addressing the physical, emotional and intellectual needs of youth from ages 6-29. In working from a relationship model we not only help young people grow in these key areas, we also draw them into mentoring relationships with our staff and other community members. It is through these relationships that the youth experience real transformation and growth.
Frontlines is pleased to offer after-school programs for youth ages 6-12 all week long. We start programs at 3:00 and end at 6pm, just enough time to learn, play and eat! All of our programs come complete with a hot delicious meal.
Home Work Club: Frontlines offers extra homework help to children ages 6-12 on Tuesdays-Thursdays from 3:00-6pm. We understand that children need one on one support they may not be able to receive at home. With the help of staff and community volunteers the children are engaged and encouraged to succeed academically.
So You Think You Can Cook: Every Wednesday from 3:00-6pm the children learn how to cook like pros. Children ages 6-12 learn how to slice and dice, bake and stew delicious dishes from all over the globe. In an engaging and fun way the children are taught important life skills and how to make informed decisions’ about food so they lead healthy, active lives.
