Youth Enrichment Program

Enrichment classes boast a wide-range of positive opportunities to improve academically, discover or develop personal qualities, and improve or gain new skills socially or in the specific enrichment area as they gain critical-thinking skills and advanced knowledge with a hands-on learning experience while supporting youth development and healthy living.

These classes provide participants with the chance to explore new interests and make new friends in our small-group settings to meet the needs of each participant as they strengthen peer relationships and develop persistence that improves motivation and self-confidence. These classes are open to members and nonmembers.

There will be similar one-day classes and mini-camps offered during extended school breaks as well!
