For Youth

Designed to help children of all ages develop into well-adjusted, kind, and happy adults, our youth activities give kids and teens a productive and fulfilling outlet for their seemingly endless energy.

Youth Workshop Mentoring Program

Acquire skills and experiences that can help unlock employment opportunities for you in this program designed for secondary-school-age children.

The program involves a great variety of hands-on work in crafts, woodwork, mechanics, building, engineering, and other areas. All activities are supervised by skilled team members and volunteers. Many older children that ‘graduate’ from this program go on to apprenticeships or full-time employment.

Malahang Reserve Programs: Backyard Sports | Bike Hut | Coffee Cart

Participate in exciting sports activities, such as soccer, footy, and basketball, or learn to ride a bike in a safe, welcoming environment at the Malahang Reserve.

This program provides youths with an opportunity to get out of the house, away from television and computer screens, and do something healthy and fun. Some participants later found their way to on-site programs at our Macleod facilities after experiencing the friendly nature of our offering.

Friday Drop-In

End the week with a bang. Unwind and enjoy fun conversations with our volunteers and youth workers over light, healthy snacks.

There is always someone to sit down with for a chat or challenge to a fun game of basketball, pool, or table tennis here. We also have a PlayStation, a selection of board games, and theme nights, so you’ll never run out of fun things to do.

We also offer a drop-off service for participants who need a safe ride home.
