Why do we have a program for Grade 6 students?

Grade 6 is a big year - full of changes. We want to help make the transition to this changing year easier and more successful.

Studies have shown Grade 6 is the age in which a child is faced with many decisions, often with two options – a healthy one and an unhealthy one. We believe youth need a place to belong, to feel safe, and to explore and grow during the important developmental stage of their Grade 6 year. We want to support youth in this critical time as they

      • age out of traditional care models
      • develop new interests
      • prepare for junior high

Through our program, we give Grade 6 youth exposure to opportunities and activities that help promote healthy living, healthy relationships, healthy choices and healthy communities.  Our program gives Calgary youth the opportunity to:

      • access facilities and programming that promotes good physical and mental health
      • expand positive social networks and build healthy relationships with peers 
      • get involved in the community 
      • build independence, leadership skills and receive mentorship from positive, adult role models
